Commentary on Christen Brewer Accident in Gregg County

People may see the preliminary reports about this accident, read that the victim allegedly failed to yield, and think there's little else to say. Further investigation could confirm that's the main reason for the wreck and for the victim's fatal injuries, but I've done this long enough to know that early reports should be taken with a grain or two of salt. In fact, victims and families call the firm all the time and tell us police reports about their accidents don't tell the whole story, or even are completely wrong.

That's not to knock the hard work of police, just to acknowledge the difficulties they sometimes face with committing to a full investigation. Between competing priorities and limited resources, sometimes they miss critical details. That can obviously be a big problem for anyone trying to get answers or help after an accident. It's one of the reasons independent investigations are such a vital tool for ensuring the truth of a crash is found. Would a fresh pair of eyes reveal there's more to the story in Gregg County?
