Commentary on John William Bible Truck Accident in Burnet County
A common challenge I deal with is people are quick to just assume someone is at fault in a single-vehicle wreck because they were the ones driving the vehicle. That's often true, considering things like speeding and inattentive driving. But you can't have a career as long as mine without learning that there are plenty of reasons a vehicle can lose control without the driver being responsible. Tire blowouts, medical conditions, road hazards, mechanical defects--common or not, it's important to consider these possibilities before jumping to conclusions. Those steps could be vital in getting someone the help they desperately need.
