Commentary on Johnny Lynn Washington Jr. Car Accident in Dickinson
When it comes to a single-vehicle wreck like this, it's important folks avoid simply jumping to conclusions,. They're often quick to assume the driver did something wrong. At 2:00 a.m. particularly, the concern for alcohol is impossible to ignore. But I would never suggest ignoring something like that. It's simply that there are many other possible factors that can cause a crash, and not all are avoidable.
Likely or not, things like mechanical issues, medical conditions, road hazards, and even other reckless drivers leaving the scene can cause a crash like this. Understanding these possibilities can be valuable knowledge to those who can take steps to ensure authorities aren't letting anything important slip through the cracks.
