Commentary on Decklyn Oliver Car Accident in Coryell County
One of the reasons I take early details like these with a grain of salt is simply because I've seen many times throughout my career how police can make mistakes and overlook important details. Single-vehicle wrecks can make this worse, since the inclination is usually to assume the driver did something wrong. Likely or not, though, there are many possible factors to consider, and some aren't things that drivers can really avoid. That's why it's usually best to ensure there are thorough independent investigations before anyone starts jumping to conclusions.
