Commentary on Cotton County Solo Accident on US-70

I'm concerned some people will jump to premature conclusions about how this wreck happened. Folks have a troubling habit of quickly pointing at common driver mistakes like speeding, phone usage, or (given the time of the accident) DWI after a solo crash, even if there's no real supporting evidence for their theories.

Is it possible this is another crash caused by a common factor like those above? Yes, but that doesn't mean they should or can be taken for granted. It's important to investigate all the possible explanations, including things that are overlooked much too often like vehicle malfunctions or defects. It's a more complicated endeavor than people often realize, and it must be done right to ensure the truth is found and the victim's loved ones get the help they deserve.
