Commentary on George Christopher Hallman Car Accident in Gatesville

George Christopher Hallman Killed in Car Accident in Gatesville, TX

I talk on this blog all the time about the importance of considering all possibilities after a single-vehicle wreck. There can be unusual circumstances to consider which initial reports don't always touch on. For example, it certainly stood out in reports that family members apparently said that the victim here was not actually the driver. Could that mean someone left the scene?

I certainly can't know without closer investigations, but it would be a good example of why it would be ridiculous for folks to just automatically assume the victim did something wrong. Perhaps more thorough independent investigations will show what exactly happened here and whether or not someone is responsible.
