Commentary on Jontue Fears, Nadi Hosea Car Accident in Texas City
Early morning wrecks like this always raise red flags. Folks tend to wonder if someone was drunk at the time, which is tragically common. That certainly warrants attention here, but it's crucial there are experienced investigators involved who know to look into other factors, likely or not.
For example, a fire is obviously serious, but folks don't often consider those fires aren't always a reasonable result of the collision. Severe collisions can cause all kinds of flammable substances to come from a vehicle. Sometimes, though, vehicles catch fire because of poorly placed fuel tanks which rupture too easily in crashes which would otherwise be survivable. Is this one such incident? There's no way to say for sure without clear evidence, which is exactly why I never rely solely on authorities when looking into deadly wrecks, no matter how straight-forward they may seem.
