Commentary on Alvaro Portillo Bus Accident in Harris County

This early in the morning, folks tend to assume something like fatigue or alcohol caused the crash. Authorities tend to start their investigations there. As likely as those are and as important as they are to look into, it would be irresponsible not to consider other possibilities. The problem is authorities aren't always inclined to do that thorough of a job, and that's when crucial details can slip through the cracks. I've seen just about anything from medical conditions to poor road design to mechanical defects cause crashes like this. Without steps to consider these possibilities, there's no telling if the victim's loved ones will get the answers they deserve.
