Commentary on Daniel Herrera Lopez Single-Vehicle Accident in Burleson County
When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks, folks don't really understand just how complex they can be. They tend to just assume the driver did something wrong. Is that possible? Certainly--in fact, it's common. But just because other factors are uncommon doesn't mean they're not worth looking into.
For example, think about the hundreds of people affected by the infamous GM ignition switch defect. The public didn't know about that issue for years, so how many people looked at those victims and just assumed they were doing something reckless? That's why there should be thorough independent investigations into crashes like this. Even if it just rules out unusual circumstances, the evidence needs a chance to speak for itself.
