Commentary on Johnnie Wooton Jr. Car Accident in Hunt County
When it comes to single-vehicle accidents, one of the biggest challenges I work against is people jumping to conclusions. They just assume there's nothing to be done because the only person seemingly involved was the driver. In reality, these crashes can be incredibly complex. They can involve anything from fatigue to mechanical defects to alcohol to road hazards. Without proper investigations, important avenues to get the victims the help they need can easily slip through the cracks. Are steps being taken here to ensure those involved have every opportunity available to them to get the help they deserve?
