Commentary on Maria Cabrera-Lara Accident in Houston

Right now even the basics of this accident are pretty murky, so while I have a feeling some people leapt to blame one or more of the "greatest hits" of single-vehicle accidents (operator distraction, fatigue, speeding, impairment etc) it's best to withhold judgment and let investigators do their work. It's still anyone's guess at this point how the motorcycle crashed and the rider was fatally injured, and far too often people blame victims of such crashes for being reckless when there's really more to the story.

Properly investigating a solo accident is more complex than people sometimes think, but it's important to spend the time and effort to learn all the facts--so the truth is known, but also to help the people affected by it get the help they deserve.
