Commentary on Michael Pope Jr. Car Accident in Houston
When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks like this, folks are often quick to jump to conclusions. They think the driver must have done something wrong. That's obviously possible, but there are other possible factors to consider, as well. Without a thorough enough investigation, important details could easily slip through the cracks. That's why I do what I can to ensure folks are at least reasonably prudent and wait for all the facts to become clear. That can be a vital step toward getting a grieving family the help they deserve.
