Brittany Knighton Killed, 1 Injured in Car Accident in Milam County, TX

I find it can be challenging for some folks to read about a tragic incident like this without jumping to conclusions. They see someone's vehicle cross the center line and just assume that driver was being reckless. As common as things like distraction and speeding are, it's crucial there be investigations into other possible factors. Some may remember the GM ignition switch defect from years ago. Reports say over a hundred people died, and the public had no idea why for years. It took independent investigators connecting the dots to get those families the closure they deserved. The same steps may prove necessary here, as well.
