Commentary on Rollover Accident on Airline Drive near Aldine Bender in Houston
When people see a crash like this, they tend to assume the driver did something wrong. Quite frankly, that's a likely explanation. Considering things like fatigue and alcohol, it'd be ridiculous not to consider that possibility. It would be equally irresponsible, however, to overlook other possibilities just because they seem less likely.
Mechanical issues, medical conditions, road hazards, other drivers that left the scene--likely or not, it's important a victim's loved ones know they're getting the whole story. Are those steps being taken here?
