Commentary on Michelle Lira, Blanca Lira Truck Accident in El Paso

These are obviously concerning details, but folks need to understand the importance of taking initial details with a grain of salt. They rarely tell the whole story, and sometimes the initial details are even wrong.

Let me give an example. A while back, folks came to me about a crash where a woman made a left turn in front of an oncoming 18-wheeler, causing a fatal collision. Police simply blamed the woman for failure to yield, but more thorough independent investigations showed there was more to the story.

As it turned out, it was very foggy at the time, and the truck involved was going too fast for conditions and even had dim headlights due to the covers being so dirty. What initially seemed like some inattentive driver turned out to be a far more complex situation.

I'm not saying anything like that happened here, but steps should always be taken to ensure nothing important is slipping through the cracks. Understanding this can be the difference between a family being left in the dark and them getting the answers they deserve.
