Commentary on El Paso Car Accident on Hawthorne

Right now nobody can really say what happened here or why, but that may not stop some folks from blaming something common like speeding or texting. I'm sure some fingers were also pointed at intoxication since the crash happened around closing time, and that could have further implications if confirmed, but investigators didn't offer any theories of their own just yet.

I'm not saying it's impossible for driver mistakes to be responsible for the El Paso crash--just that it's much too early to jump to conclusions. Right now there are still a lot of possibilities that need careful evaluation: Operator errors like the ones above, yes, but also vehicle malfunctions or defects, bad road conditions, poor visibility, medical emergencies, and many others.

Finding the truth of an accident means considering all its potential factors. Will police take the time and care to get all the facts, or should independent investigators get involved to fill in the blanks a "by the numbers" investigation might leave behind?
