Commentary on Nathanael Elisha Lutz Single-Vehicle Accident in Bedford County
When it comes to single vehicle wrecks, it's easy for people to just assume the driver did something wrong. Is that possible? Certainly--in fact, it's common. But investigators need to have the experience and tools to consider less likely possibilities. Otherwise, something important could slip through the cracks.
Quite frankly, I'm always skeptical authorities can handle that sort of thing due to things like budget constraints, other priorities, overworked officers not having enough time, etc. That's why it's important folks understand the potential factors that could go overlooked after a crash like this so they can seek out allies who know what to look for.
