Commentary on Travis Cook Accident near Canyon
One of the biggest hurdles I encounter is the assumption that single-vehicle accidents are easily explained and can be blamed without reservation on the driver. Is operator error a common cause of these accidents? Sure. However, there's often a great deal more to the story that should be accounted for rather than quickly pointing fingers.
Whether they're as likely or not, many other potential factors must be considered. Unfortunately authorities also jump to conclusions sometimes and overlook those less-likely issues in their hurry to find a "bad guy," so it's important to learn what a more comprehensive investigation--one that respects the complexity of an accident--might involve.
