Commentary on Ethan Cole Fout Car Accident in Washington Township

Something I talk about a lot on this blog is the importance of ensuring experienced investigators handle single-vehicle wrecks. Folks tend to see a teenager involved in a single-vehicle wreck, and they just assume the driver was doing something wrong. Even authorities can be quick to jump to conclusions.

As common as driver error is in these situations, there are other complex possible factors to look into. Understanding those possibilities can be crucial for victims and families involved in such tragic situations. If the investigators handling the crash aren't looking into these factors, then it's best to get the details in the hands of professionals who will give the accident the attention it deserves.
