Commentary on Car, Building Accident on NW 25th in Fort Worth
It's not unusual to see people speculate about impairment given how common it is in early morning single-vehicle wrecks. It wouldn't surprise me to see it involved here, as well. But assuming that without thorough investigations would be outright irresponsible. Steps must always be taken to ensure other possible factors get attention, too. Mechanical issues, road hazards, tire blowouts, other vehicles that left the scene--common or not, folks are best served understanding why more thorough investigations can be so crucial for getting folks help after a crash like this.
