Commentary on Stephen Lemeilleur Car Accident in Spring Branch
When folks see police speculate about things like speed, alcohol, and drugs, they're usually thinking, "Wow this guy really screwed up." But when I see those details, my thought is, "Do authorities have evidence, or are the just throwing assumptions at the wall hoping something sticks?"
In my experience, single-vehicle wrecks like this don't get the attention they really deserve. People tend to jump to conclusions even though all kinds of possible factors could be involved--some which a driver truly has no control over. Common or not, a proper investigation will consider these other possibilities. Until that happens and the facts are clear, it's best folks avoid making hasty assumptions and instead focus on what can be done for the victims and families in their time of need.
