Commentary on Motorcycle, Truck Accident on 130th Street in Lubbock

Something my experience affords me is a library of examples of why taking early details at face value can be so harmful. With a crash like this, folks need to understand that it involves two thing which get the least benefit of the doubt of all things involved in serious accidents: a teenager and a motorcyclist.

Both of these kinds of motorists are automatically blamed for just about any crash, but that can actually cause authorities to overlook extenuating circumstances. Whether or not it's likely the victim made a mistake here, it's important to let the evidence speak for itself. Besides, I can't imagine anyone would pass up any opportunity to help their 15-year-old son just because they may have made a mistake.

That's especially true if it turns out they did nothing wrong, and there's someone else who needs to take accountability for their actions. The question, then, is whether or not authorities actually gave this crash the attention it deserves or if they simply jumped to conclusions, and more thorough independent investigations will be necessary.
