Commentary on Tammy Berger Accident in Allen County

Reports don't have much to say about how this terrible accident happened yet. That may mean authorities are keeping what they know to themselves until they're certain, or it could be they can't make heads or tails of the accident. There are many lingering questions that need answering: Which vehicle was on which road when they reached the intersection? How fast were they traveling? Did one driver or the other fail to yield?

That's only a handful of the many details that have to be clarified. However, I'm concerned that police will content themselves with just a rough timeline of events and finding out whether any particular laws were broken. That is after all their purpose for investigating--not specifically to help the victims, but rather to find out if anyone needs to settle up with the state. Because of that their investigation is sometimes lacking in detail and their reports aren't as helpful to victims as they could be. To be sure those folks get the help they need, it's best that independent investigators take a closer look.
