Commentary on Carmen Pyron Accident in Nolan County
After single-vehicle crashes like this one--particularly those that happen late at night--folks sometimes decide the driver must have done something wrong. Things like speeding, falling asleep, or even possibly being intoxicated are thrown around in comment sections as people quickly jump to their own conclusions.
Whole those factors may deserve consideration, they can't be taken for granted or assumed. Even police sometimes fall victim to making some of those assumptions in their search for a simple explanation or a "bad guy." That's why I advocate for independent experts to take a second look and be sure no critical details were missed. Anything from momentary driver inattention to a medical emergency to a defective part in the vehicle could be responsible for the damage done, and every potential factor deserves attention.
The most important thing is to get clear answers for the people who urgently need them. Anything beyond that would depend on what those answers turn out to be.
