Commentary on Martin De la Torre Accident in El Paso

Preliminary reports seem to have established a rough picture of events here, but at the same time it's clear there are still many unanswered questions. Why did the victim lose control of his motorcycle? Did he just make some kind of mistake, or what it something else--a medical emergency, maybe, or a malfunction or defect sending the bike off-course?

Moreover, why did the other driver not only hit the victim but then leave without stopping? Is it possible they didn't realize what happened, or did they deliberately leave to avoid getting caught? If they fled intentionally, why? Did they panic, or did they have something else to hide like active warrants or drunk driving (which might add other complications)? What's visibility like there at that hour? What were road, light, and weather conditions like at the time?

That may seem like a lot of questions, but realistically they're just a drop in the bucket that must be filled by a proper investigation. Learning all the relevant details of the incident is crucial--not only to be sure the victim's loved ones get badly-needed answers, but also to be sure all the right parties are held responsible. Will police take the time and care needed to resolve this, or should independent experts look again to ensure more blanks are filled in?
