Issachar Librado, Mayra Orozco Injured in Solo Crash on SH 81 in Hill County, TX
Hill County, TX — July 27, 2022, 28-year-old Issachar Librado and 22-year-old Mayra Orozco were injured in a single-vehicle accident on State Highway 81 in Hill County.
Authorities say the incident happened around 10:50 p.m. on TX-81 near County Road 4111. Preliminary investigation suggests Orozco was driving a Hyundai Tiburon north on the highway when she failed to maintain a single lane. The car left the road to the road and Orozco over-corrected, causing the vehicle to enter a side-skid. It hit a nearby pipe fence and overturned, then rolled several times before coming to rest on its roof.
Orozco and her passenger Librado suffered serious injuries in the accident. A second passenger in the Hyundai received possible injuries.

Commentary on Issachar Librado, Mayra Orozco in Hill County
On this blog I have long advocated for independent experts to look again at single-vehicle crashes and make sure no unusual or subtle details escaped notice. People tend to focus mostly (or exclusively) on the most common potential causes for a wreck like this--particularly driver mistakes, like falling asleep or texting instead of watching the road. Police mentioned "failure to maintain a lane" and "faulty evasive maneuvers" in this wreck, both of which are typically considered operator errors.
In many cases theories like those are eventually confirmed by further investigation, but they still can't be taken for granted before all the facts are available. I've seen many instances where police overlooked something critical and their reports were (at best) incomplete or (at worst) entirely wrong. It's important that every possible explanation be evaluated to ensure the truth is learned; if police don't plan to invest the time or care to get the whole story perhaps someone else should step in to fill in the rest of the blanks. The people affected by the crash deserve no less.
