Commentary on Kaila Riojas Accident on 19th St in Lubbock

It's not clear exactly what happened here, but I'm sure most would agree that the premature end of a young woman's life is more than enough reason to find out everything possible with a full investigation.

Some may be inclined to skip over all that and jump to conclusions, but without knowing all the particulars of this sad event that's obviously unfair. If circumstances beyond the victim's control led to the collision and her tragic passing it obviously wouldn't be right to point fingers at her. Will police take the necessary time and care to ensure the whole truth is learned and the right parties (if any) are held accountable, or should independent experts step in to fill in the blanks police often leave behind?
