Commentary on Caleb Roach Accident in Tyler

Often after an accident like this, people are quick to write it off as someone making a dangerous choice to walk on a highway--with tragic results. While it can certainly be risky to be on foot there, I'd also point out that preliminary reports don't even say exactly where the victim was or what was happening at the time.

As such I don't want to speculate on what did or didn't happen, but if litigating accidents for nearly 30 years has taught me anything it's that there's really no such thing as a simple or straightforward accident. A man lost his life here, and that alone warrants as thorough an investigation as possible. If police aren't inclined to give this situation the time and attention it deserves, maybe an independent investigator should look again so the victim's loved ones get clear answers. They deserve no less.
