Commentary on Car Accident on TX-183 Ramp in Fort Worth

After reading about a single-vehicle accident like this one I'm concerned that some will quickly jump to conclusions about how it happened. Folks have a troubling habit of pointing at common driver mistakes like speeding, distraction from a phone, intoxication, and a handful of others--without waiting for all the facts--just about any time a car crashes.

Is it possible something like those was involved here? Of course, but just because it's possible doesn't mean they can be taken for granted. A few sentences in the news, none of which point to even a suspected cause, are clearly not the whole story. It's important to evaluate every possible factor, including things that are overlooked much too often like vehicle malfunctions or defects.
