Commentary on Corbin Freitag Accident in Hurst

Reports about this accident suggest the young driver had a medical condition that took his control away at the wheel. I have no reason to doubt that, and I hope he has recovered fully since this accident occurred, but I also can't help but wonder if police wrote the matter off after concluding that a seizure was the sole contributing factor. Did they perform their due diligence and find out whether anything else played a part?

I talk all the time about just how complex single-vehicle wrecks can be. The cause of an accident isn't always the same as the cause of a victim's injuries, so while the victim's episode may have sent the pickup off the road I wonder if the cab separating from its chassis--and the possible poor construction that led to it--had anything to do with the damage he suffered.

Knowing whether anything else endangered that driver's life, and the realization that police may not make an effort to find out, is what makes independent investigations even more important. Maybe another look wouldn't reveal any other factors of particular significance, but whatever is learned those affected deserve to know no stone was left unturned.
