Commentary on Brian Pruitt Accident in Temple

Police say the SUV driver's failure to yield was the primary reason for the wreck, but they also noted a suspicion that the victim had consumed alcohol beforehand. It's not clear how they concluded that or if they pursued any proof, so maybe they were just guessing. That happens more often than people might think.

I'm troubled that authorities looked no farther than the drivers while assigning fault. Of course it's possible that one or both of them made mistakes, but did officers check into anything else? Vehicle failures? Road conditions? Bad sightlines? Is that intersection known for being dangerous because it's uncontrolled?

I'm not trying to make things more complicated than they have to be; as I said, this could all have a simple explanation. However, I'm not satisfied when police just decide something is "good enough" and move on. In their rush to see to other priorities, they overlook key details that can make all the difference.
