Commentary on Keith Powers Accident in Newton County

One of the biggest hurdles I encounter in this line of work is people who think a solo accident is easily explained. Investigators mentioned the victim was traveling at high speeds, which might be enough for many people to blame him for speeding and say the crash, while clearly tragic, was of his own making.

Am I saying it's impossible that's what caused the wreck? Of course not. Speeding is unfortunately quite common and it should certainly be considered. However, there could easily be more to the story and investigators must evaluate all the possibilities. What if the bike malfunctioned, or it hit a slick patch of road, or another driver forced the victim to swerve off-course and then left the scene?

Likely or not, those issues and others also need consideration. Unfortunately investigating authorities also overlook them sometimes, which is why it's important for victims and families to be aware of how complex a single-vehicle wreck can really be.
