Commentary on Ramiro Rodriquez Accident off I-27 in Lubbock

When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks it's far too easy for people to immediately conclude the driver did something wrong. That's particularly true in certain kinds of accidents, such as motorcycle crashes (many folks harbor some nasty biases about those) and late-night/early-morning wrecks where people assume only driver carelessness or intoxication could explain them.

Is it possible the victim was under the influence? Of course; many solo accidents at this time of night are due to alcohol. However, I want to be clear that nobody has said a word about intoxication and I'm not pointing fingers. It needs careful consideration because a local business might have violated dram shop law and that would need addressing too, but investigators must consider every possible explanation.

Little as I like saying it, I'm sometimes skeptical that authorities will be thorough enough due to things like budget constraints, other priorities, overworked officers not having enough time, etc. That's why it's important to understand what might get overlooked after a crash like this and seek out allies who'll make sure those possibilities get proper attention.
