Commentary on Beaumont Car Accident on College St

It's much too early to say what happened here, but obviously it's never a good thing to learn a car hit someone. Exactly how and why that occurred must still be learned, so I hope police are hard at work figuring it out. I admit to having a few concerns about exactly how much time and care they'll put into it, though.

That's not to knock the hard (and often thankless) work police do, but in many cases waiting for them to turn up some real answers isn't the best option. Between competing priorities, limited staff and resources, and only so much time to devote to a non-fatal wreck, officers must sometimes rush through their investigation and crucial details may slip through the cracks. Incomplete or incorrect reports can be a big problem for injured victims in the aftermath of these accidents.

Maybe that won't be an issue here and police will get to the bottom of things, but I think most would agree that the victim deserves to know no stone was left unturned. Any steps beyond getting answers would depend on what those answers are.
