Commentary on Jose Barrientos Car Accident in Dallas
People tend to look at a crash like this and just assume the driver must have screwed up. That's often what leads to crashes like this, but certainly not always. Likely or not, there are other possible factors drivers can't always avoid. It's important they get attention, but I often find it takes more thorough independent investigations to ensure nothing important slipped through the cracks. I don't see why this incident would be an exception to that.
