Commentary on Alex Dean Armstrong Car Accident in Marion County
Quite frankly, unsafe speeds with a teen driver is probably the most common factor one would expect to see, aside from cell phone usage. It's quite possible that happened here. However, I always talk about the importance of giving drivers the benefit of the doubt until all the facts are clear. I don't draw the line at drivers like this just because they're young.
Likely or not, there are many reasons a single-vehicle wreck can occur. Unfortunately authorities tend to only look into some of the more obvious possibilities. That's why important information can easily slip through the cracks. Understanding this can help people take the necessary steps to ensure they're getting the full story.
