Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident on TX-288 in Houston

Obviously there are a lot of gaps in what police can or will say about this accident. That likely just means they don't have enough information yet, but in a few cases it means they're genuinely stumped by what they're seeing.

That's not as uncommon as people may think. There may be some temptation to blame single-vehicle accidents on the driver more or less by default, but a variety of other possible factors must also be carefully considered: Poor road conditions, limited visibility, medical emergencies, mechanical failures or defects in the vehicle...The list goes on, but unfortunately every box isn't always checked by a standard police once-over.
