Commentary on Miranda "Randi" Welch Scooter Accident in Austin
It's not entirely unusual for there to be so few details available after a serious accident, but it is somewhat concerning. When I see a lack of information, it's sometimes a sign authorities simply aren't giving the incident the attention it deserves. Anyone who has been on 6th Street at 2:30 a.m. knows it is far from empty. The bars may be closed, but the crowd takes a while to disperse. Is there anyone who saw what happened? Was another driver involved? Did police respond quickly or speak with anyone who may have played a role in the incident? Folks would be surprised how often police can simply miss important information. As the community rallies around this victim, it's important to understand why they should also be taking steps to ensure the facts come to light.
