Commentary on Car Accident on Grand Parkway in Cypress

Crashes involving teen drivers, while just as serious as any other (or even more so), don't always get the careful investigation they deserve. That happens when people regard them mostly as tragic byproducts of inexperienced or potentially-reckless young people taking risks behind the wheel, prematurely pinning the blame on the drivers without waiting for the facts to come in.

Any driver can make a mistake, though statistically young drivers make more of them. Police seem to be leaning that direction by mentioning speeding, but the only way to know for sure what happened is to conduct a thorough investigation that accounts for all the possible factors. Things like dangerous road hazards, tire blowouts, or even vehicle defects may not be all that common, but they cause wrecks every day and mustn't be ignored when seeking the whole story.

Unfortunately, those harder-to-detect elements are often overlooked because law enforcement focuses mostly on common factors. Turning a blind eye to others can be a serious problem if someone is blamed for a wreck that was actually out of their hands. Will police invest appropriate time and care to ensure the full truth of this crash is learned?
