Commentary on Jeffrey Ford Car Accident in Jones County

I notice police said they're looking into alcohol as a possible factor here. That's likely just out of stand procedure and given the circumstances surrounding the crash. I certainly wouldn't suggest ignoring that possibility, given that there could be an establishment liable under dram shop law for illegally over-serving the victim and getting them hurt.

With that said, my concern is authorities may not be so thorough when it comes to other possible factors. Mechanical issues, medical conditions, road hazards, a lack of lighting--a lot of things can cause a single vehicle wreck. Without the right experience and tools, something can easily slip through the cracks. Knowing what to look for is crucial for getting folks the help they deserve, and the same would no doubt prove true here, as well.
