Commentary on Bianca Center Accident in El Paso
Reports don't really say exactly why one driver failed to yield at the intersection. Investigators could find it really just boils down to a momentary lapse in concentration or attention, but as always it's best not to jump to any conclusions and instead to take a close look.
Some potential explanations might not be too obvious without further scrutiny. Vehicle failures or defects, wet or hazardous roads, missing or unclear signage, and many other issues--unlikely as they may be when compared to common factors like inattention--must still be accounted for to ensure only the facts tell the story. Will police be thorough enough to get those facts, or would a second look from independent investigators better ensure the full story is known?
