Commentary on Jeanelle Tennison Car Accident in Abilene
When it comes to a deadly wreck like this, folks tend to think it's all about who had the right-of-way or whether or not someone was on their phone or drunk. Those are all common factors worth considering. But it would be outright irresponsible not to consider other possible factors. Were there mechanical issues? Did everyone's airbags and seatbelts work properly? Is this a notoriously dangerous intersection? I've been doing this for 30 years, and quite frankly authorities don't always tell the whole story. It's why there should always be some consideration for who's looking into a crash and whether or not they're asking the right questions.
