Commentary on Joshua Salinas Accident in Dayton

People have a bad habit of writing off single-vehicle crashes as being the driver's fault without giving them much further thought, but there's a lot of reasons a crash like this could happen. Anything from driver mistakes to bad roads to vehicle failures or defects, just to name a few of many possibilities, could have contributed to the vehicle leaving the road, so until all the facts are in it's best not to jump to any conclusions.

Having said that, I wonder if police will give this matter the care and time it deserves. I don't mean that as a dig against them, just an acknowledgment that they have limited time and resources and traffic accidents don't always get much of either. I've lost count of the reports I've seen that reflect incomplete investigations and hasty conclusions, both of which cause major problems for victims and families in search of answers or help. If there's confusion or doubt remaining about what happened in Dayton, it may be best for someone else to step in and see what other dots can be connected. The victim's loved ones deserve the whole story.
