Tragic consequences like this certainly call for accountability. A driver facing charges could see that happens to the fullest, most appropriate extent. But something to keep in mind is that there is often more to a situation like this. It's not just about putting someone in front of a jury.

Folks affected by a devastating crash like this also need help, and Texas law provides tools which allow them to get that help. Unfortunately, efforts from authorities alone are rarely enough, since they tend to be focused on what consequences people can face.

To get families the help they need, it's usually best that there are independent efforts to find out what caused the crash, how it could have been avoided, and what steps can be taken to make things right. Are those steps being taken here?
