Commentary on Randy Michau, Seth Boylston Van Accident near Greenbrier

When it comes to crossover wrecks, folks can be quick to jump to conclusions. If a vehicle crosses over, it means the driver did something wrong, right? Well, not always. For all we know, there was a tire blowout, mechanical issues, some other reckless driver, a medical emergency, etc. Things like speeding, fatigue, and distraction are common, but they're just a few of the man possible factors worth looking into. How to look into those possibilities is where things can get challenging.

Some folks may be content to wait for police, but their efforts aren't always enough. In fact, I've handled countless incidents where they got the facts outright wrong. In a crossover wreck not long ago, for example, they claimed a car crossed the center line and hit an 18-wheeler. When we actually looked at the evidence, though, it was clear that the 18-wheeler was the one that crossed over.

If authorities can make mistakes like that, there are all kinds of other, less obvious details that can slip through the cracks. Hopefully folks can learn about these potential shortcomings so they can take proper steps to get the right people looking into the crash as soon as possible. I see no reason why this crash would be an exception.
