Albany, TX — August 13, 2022, 51-year-old Robin Morrison died in a rollover accident on U.S. Highway 283 near Albany in Shackelford County.

Commentary on Robin Morrison Accident on US-283 near Albany

People may read the few facts available in preliminary reports and decide for themselves the driver made a mistake that ended in the rollover. It would likely be easy for some to say the SUV went out of control at too high a speed or the victim was texting instead of watching the road.

Things like that should be investigated, of course, but it's important not to take anything for granted. Other potential factors should also be considered--not just what caused the crash, but also the proximate cause of the victim's injuries. The two aren't always the same, which sometimes surprises people to learn.

For instance, what if a product malfunction or defect played a part here? Did the SUV's brakes or steering fail or lock up? Could adjustments in design or build have reasonably kept it from overturning? Reports say the victim was ejected, which police usually decide means he wasn't buckled up, but could the seat belt have failed or broken instead?

Frankly police investigators don't always have the time, tools, or training to look for factors like that or others beyond the most obvious. It's always best to have the facts straight, and sometimes that means getting independent investigators to have another look. Click the image below to learn more.
