Commentary on Lorin Miller, Kolson Jacobs, Connor Ratcliff Truck Accident near Yoakum

My main concern with tragedies like this is whether or not they're getting the attention they deserve. Folks are often quick to jump to conclusions when teen drivers are involved. That's typically because teenagers are more likely to make mistakes that lead to accidents. But that's no excuse for overlooking other possibilities. Yet time and time again, families come to me about similar wrecks with police reports which barely scratch the surface. Even authorities can be subject to their biases, and that can lead to crucial information slipping through the cracks. Did that happen here? IT may take more thorough independent investigations to say for sure.
