Commentary on Pedestrian Accident at Galveston and Sanders

So far there isn't a lot of clear information about what happened here. That could mean investigators are playing things close to the vest until they know more, or it could mean they're not quite sure what they're looking at. Either way, until more facts are available it's likely unwise to jump to any conclusions.

Some may not think anyone would try to put the puzzle together with so few pieces, but I've learned over the years that people have a tendency to blame auto-pedestrian accidents mostly on the person who was on foot at the time. Far from every such accident is actually the pedestrian's fault, though, and with that in mind it's important to learn all the details of what happened in Laredo: Was the pedestrian crossing the road, walking along it, or simply standing nearby? What's visibility like in that area? Are there clear lines of sight and adequate lighting if needed? What were weather and road conditions? Where were both parties coming from before they collided?

That's just a a quick handful of the many questions that still need clear answers to be sure the crash is properly understood. Without considering all the potential details it might be too easy for important facts to go unnoticed and wrong conclusions to be reached. Will police be careful and thorough enough to learn the whole and true story?
