Commentary on Michael Ross Car Accident in Longview

I'm going to be a bit blunt here. Someone failing to notice hitting someone is usually suspicious unless they're in a large vehicle like an 18-wheeler. An SUV driver hitting someone, likely after sun-up, and that person some remaining on top of the vehicle all the way until the driver got to work just raises every possible red flag. How the hell does this happen?

A prudent investigator would no doubt be looking into things like alcohol and drugs here to find out if something impaired the driver's attention. Now, is it possible this is all just a freak accident that couldn't be avoided? Sure, I'm not the type to try to blame someone without knowing all the facts. That said, I tell people all the time that there are few situations that are truly simple or straight forward. No doubt this incident is far from the exception.
