Commentary on Dennis Gathungu Car Accident in Lubbock
There are obviously concerning claims in the news about this crash, but it's not my place to comment on that. For all we know, this is just a big misunderstanding, and a man was seriously hurt due to factors beyond his control.
It could be that a local alcohol provider illegally over-served him. Perhaps there was an emergency. There may have been mechanical issues authorities overlooked. Preliminary reports give preliminary details--that is to say they don't tell the whole story. Until there can be certainty all the facts are clear, folks should avoid jumping to conclusions and focus simply on what can be done for those affected by the crash.
