Commentary on Destinie Greenwell Car Accident in Lufkin
After a crash this serious, the scene can be rather chaotic. Without the right experience and equipment, crucial details can slip through the cracks. As often as folks may assume authorities have those resources, the reality is their reports are rarely thorough enough. I talk to families all the time who found the police reports to be lacking. That's one of the reasons more thorough independent investigations are often necessary. Understanding these potential shortcomings may help folks understand why I tend to take details like these with a grain of salt until more evidence is available.
