Commentary on Kiet Ton Accident on Hwy 6 in Sugar Land

I'm not coming down on police for not having everything neatly tied up so soon after this accident, but that does mean reports are frustratingly light on useful information so far. How and why did one driver cross out of his lane into oncoming traffic? Did he just make a mistake, or is there more to the story? Were the roads bad there? What was the weather like? Lighting? Sightlines? Was the driver awake, alert, and paying attention? Was anything wrong with the Toyota? Can anyone involved in the wreck provide more details?

I don't mean to stack up questions here, but at the same time I can't be the only one to want more information than news reports provide right now. When people are hurt in a wreck it's important to learn all the facts of who, what, when, where, why, and how. That means investigating carefully and thoroughly and making sure only clear evidence tells the story. Will law enforcement give this matter that kind of time and attention, or should independent investigators take closer look?
