Commentary on Alisha Rose Cromer Car Accident in New Waverly
I find that a lot of people will look at a crash like this and assume police have everything handled. It's just two normal passenger vehicles, a typical intersection with a stop sign, and there's likely nothing unusual that led to the crash. The problem, however, is that these things aren't always true. What if this involved alcohol? What if something was wrong with the crossing itself? Was signage or lighting missing? Did any mechanical issues contribute to the crash? Did things like airbags and seatbelts malfunction? Likely or not, there are important issues authorities aren't always able to look into on their own. That's why it's often best to consider alternative avenues of investigation so victims and families can be sure they're getting the whole story.
