Commentary on Falls County Rollover Crash on CR 159
Reports don't have much to say yet about how or why this accident happened. Some may assume the driver made some kind of mistake, and the time of night may lead to some guesses about drunk driving, but nothing can or should be taken for granted as more dots get connected.
Only the facts of the matter, supported by clear evidence, should tell the story here. That's the best way to ensure the victims' loved ones get some badly-needed answers. Will police invest the time and care needed to get to the bottom of this, or would an independent investigator working specifically on the victims' behalf stand a better chance?
