Commentary on Brandan Tenorio Accident in San Antonio

Police don't seem 100% clear on how this crash occurred. Obviously it's concerning any time a driver travels the wrong direction on a highway, but there are many reasons that could happen. Among the more obvious would be something like driver distraction or intoxication, but at the same time less-common possibilities like vehicle malfunctions or unsafe road conditions must also be accounted for.

Unfortunately I've learned over the years that police investigators tend to overlook or dismiss potential factors that would be hard to investigate or would need more training and equipment than they brought with them. Moreover, even the factors they do look into--like drunk driving--can be more complicated than they seem, as a DWI crash might mean a local business should also be held responsible for the damage done under dram shop law.

Because police don't always have the time, tools, or training to perform a full investigation, it's often better for experienced independent professionals to have another look and make sure everything is accounted for. Click below to learn more.
