Commentary on Omar Isaac Garcia Single-Vehicle Accident in El Paso County
Just to be clear, I have no information about this crash beyond what's been made available. It's entirely possible there is evidence to suggest alcohol contributed to the crash. However, I've seen many cases where it turned out police just brought that up because it's a common factor, and evidence showed there were other factors at play. That's what can make single-vehicle wrecks so complex. People are already predisposed to blame the driver. That's only going to be more of a problem with a motorcyclist. Steps should be taken to learn about other possible factors which warrant attention in these situations. If nothing else, a victim's loved ones should know those looking into their crash are getting all the facts.
