Commentary on Edgar Suarez Accident off I-35 in Austin

One of the biggest complications with single-vehicle accidents like this is people's tendency to make assumptions about their causes. Certain common factors like speeding, inattention, and sometimes intoxication are blamed--particularly after motorcycle accidents, which people unfortunately blame on reckless riders no matter their true circumstances.

Are operator mistakes commonly behind solo accidents like this? Yes, but there could also be more to the story. Bad roads, failures or defects in the bike, other drivers that ran the victim off the road and then fled--those and many other factors could have been involved. Even if the rider did make a mistake like getting intoxicated, that could be more complicated than people realize since a local business might be liable for what followed under dram shop law.

I'm not trying to complicate things here. It's just tragic to see that a man lost his life, and I think most would agree that it's important to find out exactly how and why that occurred. One way or another, reserving judgment is key because it means only the evidence will ultimately do the talking. The victim's loved ones deserve no less than the whole truth, so it's important to involve people who will ensure they get it.
