Commentary on Austin Rollover Crash on E Slaughter Lane

I've found that people are often much too quick to blame crashes like this one on a driver making some kind of serious mistake. There's always talk of speeding, getting distracted, or (for the cynical) being intoxicated and losing control, but while those factors may be involved in some cases they can't be taken for granted. There are plenty of other possible factors that could influence or cause a wreck like this, and to learn the whole story all of them must be considered.

Even if something seems unlikely, it's important to have all the facts before reaching conclusions. Will police take that kind of care and time in Austin, or will learning the truth require attention from experienced independent experts?
