Commentary on Car Accident on Vivian Road in Harris County
Folks tend to look at car crashes like this as straight-forward and simple. After all, details appear to say someone went through a stop sign, right? When you've done this as long as I have, though, you learn that investigations need to consider even unlikely possibilities. For all we know, the victim's injuries were actually the result of something unusual like a faulty airbag or seatbelt. Maybe this was like a West Texas crash I looked into not long ago where TxDOT had actually removed stop signs at a crossing. Likely or not, getting folks the help they need means knowing the whole story.
