Commentary on Felipe Trejo Accident in Fort Worth
After single-vehicle wrecks folks are generally quick to jump to conclusions about their causes. That's likely because this sort of thing tends to involve drivers making mistakes like speeding or watching their phone instead of the road, just to name a couple of common possibilities.
Those and other operator errors may come up a lot, but in case anyone thinks I'm pointing fingers let me be clear that they can't be taken for granted. There are plenty of other, less-predictable potential factors to consider as well. Vehicle failures or defects, road hazards, tire blowouts, medical emergencies--common or not, people need to understand why it's important to avoid jumping to conclusions before all the facts are in. Instead of making guesses from the sidelines, it's instead best to focus on what can be done for the victims and families hurt by these incidents.
