Commentary on Guillermo Prado Accident in Laredo

If the years have taught me anything it's that people may be only too happy to offer theories about how and why that vehicle fell off the highway. Comment sections tend to fill up quickly with folks making uncharitable guesses about drivers watching cell phones instead of the road, speeding, or in some cases losing control while intoxicated. Whatever the specific guess, the finger is almost always pointed at the victim.

It's not that driver error can't be responsible for what happened. It's really more that saying so without any specific evidence or facts to back it up is both unfair and unproductive. Investigators still have a great deal of work to do and many possible factors to consider; anyone fixating on driver error may want to click the image below to learn what a full and proper investigation might entail.
