Commentary on Travis Cook Accident near Canyon

One of the biggest hurdles I encounter is the mistaken idea that single-vehicle accidents are easily explained, or that they can be blamed without reservation on the driver. Are operator errors like speeding, distraction, and even sometimes impairment commonly behind similar accidents? Yes, but there's often more to the story and all the possibilities should be accounted for rather than jumping to any premature conclusions.

Many other potential factors besides a driver mistake must be considered to ensure the whole story is learned. Unfortunately even authorities sometimes overlook those less-likely issues in their hurry to find a "bad guy," so it's important to know what a more comprehensive investigation--one that respects the complexity of an accident--might involve.
