Commentary on Ashley Hernandez, Fabian Hernadez Car Accident in Martin County
To be frank, it's not often someone supposed falls asleep at the wheel in the middle of the afternoon. It happens, for sure, and maybe there is enough evidence to say it happened here, as well. With that said, there's a concern I always have which folks don't often consider.
Despite what people may think, authorities can sometimes jump to conclusions. If they don't have the time, experience, or equipment to properly examine the details, they may just go with their gut instinct. Sometimes, the survivors are never even questions for their side of the story.
Considering how many reasons there are for a car to lose control--common and otherwise--it's important there are thorough investigations to make sure nothing slipped through the cracks. Were proper steps taken to get answers here, or are we only seeing a fraction of the whole story?
