Commentary on Amber Laughlin Car Accident in Johnson County
I get crashes like this coming across my desk all the time. Folks tend to assume the driver is at fault, and that's that. Frankly, that is the most likely explanation, considering things like cell phone usage and alcohol. But what about other possibilities? Mechanical issues, road hazards, defective tires, medical emergencies, missing signage or lighting--likely or not, these things happen. The problem is authorities don't always look into such possibilities, meaning victims and families have to know what to look for or seek out professionals who do. Were those steps taken here?
