Commentary on Alix Trask Accident in New Braunfels

Investigators don't seem to feel the driver was at fault here. I'm glad to learn she was apparently operating safely despite this tragic accident, but that still leaves many unanswered questions about why the crash happened. While it's possible it was just a terrible coincidence, it's important that all potential explanations be considered.

Unfortunately I've learned over the years that police are likely to just let the matter go once they've determined no specific laws were broken. They're less concerned with finding the whole truth than they are apprehending "bad guys" on behalf of the state, so learning the whole story isn't always their priority--even though that could help bring badly-needed answers to the victim's loved ones. That's why in many cases where there's lingering confusion I recommend having independent investigators with the right training and equipment (and the time to put them to use) take another look.
