Commentary on Fiery I-10 Car Accident in San Antonio

So far there's no real telling how or why this crash happened. Maybe the injured drivers can shed some light on things once they're in shape to talk, but their versions of events may not match up so it's likely best--as always--to find the objective facts that tell the story.

Hopefully police are already hard at work getting those facts--reconstructing the scene, analyzing debris and tire marks, looking for witnesses or traffic camera footage, and all the other useful forensic steps that can help connect the dots. Here's the thing, though: Much as they may want to be that thorough after every accident, police rarely have the time or resources to really dig that deep. Over the years I've learned that officers sometimes have to rush through a once-over and make an educated guess before moving on.

Obviously an incomplete or incorrect report about what happened can be a big hurdle for victims and families looking for answers and help after these accidents. That's why I often recommend that independent experts look again on their behalf. With the right tools and training, they can answer questions police didn't have a chance to address. That can be invaluable both for knowing the truth and for holding the right parties accountable.
