Commentary on Becky Wilson Accident in Martin County

People have an unfortunate tendency to blame single-vehicle accidents like this one on the drivers without waiting for all the facts. However, it's always important to investigate a crash carefully and find out whether there's more to the story.

Instead of assuming the driver made a mistake, consider other possibilities: Was the road wet or hazardous? Did the Hyundai blow a tire, or maybe have some kind of defective part that failed? Furthermore, while rollovers can obviously be quite deadly most modern vehicles can withstand them to at least some degree; should the crash realistically have been survivable?

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 to everyone's benefit after an accident. However, that includes looking into things that police too often neglect. Getting the whole story may require more thorough independent investigations.
