Justin Allen Hanson, 1 Injured in Car Accident in Wood County, TX

It appears that 39-year-old Justin Allen Hanson and an unidentified 42-year-old man were in a Ford Edge traveling southbound on FM 2659. Rounding the curve approaching US 80, the vehicle somehow ran off-road where it crashed into a ditch.

Details suggested that there was a "long response time" from police, so the victims were taken from the scene before their arrival. Police say they heard from witnesses that the driver "had been drinking," but this has yet to be confirmed. At this time, no further information is available.

Commentary on Justin Allen Hanson Car Accident in Wood County

Just to be clear up front, I am not going to assume that the claims of drunk driving are accurate unless I see clear evidence confirming it. Witnesses can be a vital part of an investigation, but folks would be shocked to see how often a statement can go from, "I thought maybe they'd been drinking," at the scene only to end up as, "Witnesses say the driver was drunk," on the news desk. There are all kinds of reasons a car can lose control and crash, and a prudent investigators knows how important it is to consider all those possibilities if folks are going to get the help they deserve. Are those steps being taken here?
