Commentary on Jaime David Gomez Truck Accident in Brenham

I find that folks tend to read preliminary details like this and just take them at face value. The victim made a mistake, and that's that, tragic as it may be, right? Well, that's possible. But other possibilities need attention, too, if a grieving family is going to get the answers they deserve.

One thing to consider, for example, is how unusual it would be for someone to try to go onto a crossover that wasn't there. This could certainly just be a lapse in judgment, but I can't help wondering if this sort of thing has happened before. Poor road design is something authorities rarely give any attention. Could it be that improvements to the signage, lines, or layout of this crossing would have prevented this tragedy? Have locals expressed concerns about this area before, but local officials did nothing?

Likely or not, these are the sorts of questions that a prudent investigator answers. If authorities aren't looking into those possibilities here, the crash may be better off in the hands of independent professionals who know what they're doing.
