Commentary on Crissean Butler Accident in Midland County

I have long been an advocate of ensuring that a second set of eyes looks at single-vehicle crashes to make sure no unusual or subtle details went unnoticed. Public opinion tends to quickly decide a driver made mistakes that led to their injuries, and while in many cases that turns out to be true I've seen plenty of others where something out of a victim's hands sent them off the road. That's why it's always best to reserve judgment and wait until just the facts can tell the whole story.

So far police haven't said what they think caused the accident, which I hope means they haven't jumped to any conclusions and are carefully investigating all the possible explanations. Anything from simple driver inattention to poor road conditions to a defective part in the vehicle could be responsible for the tragic damage done, and all potential factors deserve attention. The most important thing is to find clear answers for the victim's loved ones; anything beyond that would depend on what those answers are.
