Commentary on Marcy Turner Accident in Smith County

After reading about a single-vehicle accident like this one I'm concerned that folks will be far too quick to jump to conclusions about how it happened. There is a troubling tendency to point at common driver mistakes like speeding, distraction from a phone, or otherwise not committing their full attention to the task at hand.

Is it possible one or more of those were involved? Certainly, but it's also crucial not to decide that prematurely, even if police seem to lean that direction. Their preliminary findings are really just "best guesses" about what happened and shouldn't be taken as the whole story. It's important to evaluate every possible factor, including things that are overlooked much too often like vehicle malfunctions or defects.
