Commentary on Jazmyne Williams Accident in Granbury
Reports suggest the driver may have had a seizure at the wheel, which then sent the vehicle off the road. I have no reason to doubt that and I can't begin to imagine the difficulties such a condition poses to someone trying to lead a normal life. Before the entirety of this tragic accident is pinned on that sudden episode, though, it may be best to look into whether anything else contributed to the damage done. The cause of a crash and the cause of a victim's injuries aren't always the same.
For instance, some may see that the Jeep's passenger was ejected and conclude she wasn't buckled up. That would have dramatically increased her chance of injury in a crash like this, but it's not fair to assume she didn't have her belt on. What if it broke or didn't tighten during the crash? Such equipment failures are far more common than one might think, and little as I like saying it police don't always look for signs of such malfunctions before writing that a victim simply didn't use the belt.
I'm not saying things have to be more complicated than they appear, but I think most would agree that having as many answers as possible can only be beneficial after an accident. Getting those answers may mean looking into things that police often neglect, though, so the whole story may require more thorough independent investigations.
