Commentary on San Antonio Wrong-Way Accident

I often have to remind people that it's best not to jump to any conclusions about an accident, no matter how preliminary reports may say things happened. For instance, people reading about this wrong-way wreck may quickly conclude that the at-fault driver was intoxicated.

That's a plausible explanation for what happened, but that isn't the same as knowing it for a fact. For all anyone knows the wrong-way driver got disoriented in an unfamiliar area, or maybe the area's signage or road markings weren't clear in the dark. Her car could have malfunctioned and crossed over just a few moments before the crash, or she might have had a medical emergency that took her control away.

All I'm saying is it's not fair or right to decide what happened before the facts can tell the story. In the meantime that seriously-injured woman deserves the benefit of the doubt. Depending on what the facts turn out to be there may be other steps to take; for instance, if intoxication actually was a factor then a local business may have violated dram shop law and should be held responsible for the victims' injuries. Only time and further investigation could say for certain, so I hope police will give the matter the time and careful attention it deserves.
