Commentary on Nina Allen Accident on I-20 in Harrison County

People may read the few details the news able to provide so far and think this crash, while tragic, seems fairly self-explanatory. That feeling might stem from an unfortunately public tendency to blame wreck like this on the striking driver; after all, if someone ran onto the shoulder and hit a stopped vehicle, what else is there to know?

It's important to realize that many accidents aren't nearly as "simple" as people think. Some are caused by driver mistakes, yes, but many others are due to issues beyond the driver's control like vehicle malfunctions, bad road conditions, someone being cut off and forced to swerve, and many other unusual factors. That's why it's important not to jump to conclusions and instead have professionals with the right tools and know-how get to the heart of what happened. The people affected by the accident deserve no less than the whole truth.
