Commentary on Shanna Roe Bicycle Accident in Lubbock
When it comes to a serious accident like this, my concern is if people are giving the victim any benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately, folks are quick to blame pedestrians, cyclists, scooters, motorcyclists, and other non-typical travelers without even knowing all the facts.
It's certainly possible the victim did something wrong here, but how often do we hear about cyclists being run over because drivers aren't keeping a proper lookout? Taking steps to ensure investigations are thorough will no doubt be crucial for gutting this woman's loved ones the answers they deserve. Are those steps being taken?
