Commentary on Car Accident on Stewart Road in San Juan
I often talk on this blog about how I don't take police investigations at face value. Why is that? With a crash like this, for example, wouldn't they just look at who had the right of way? That's an important detail, but families are often shocked to see what all goes into a complete investigation when it comes to getting people the help they need. Did airbags go off? Did seatbelts deploy? How fast were vehicles going? Was alcohol involved? Did defective brakes or tires play a role? Is the intersection designed in a dangerous way that makes it riskier for drivers? Likely or not, there's a reason I tend to rely on independent investigators even after crashes like the one described here.
