Commentary on Crawford/Parks Accident in Grayson County
All early reports can say about this situation is that one driver allegedly crossed left of center and triggered a crash. Some may consider that pretty much everything there is to know, but as always I must suggest withholding judgment and making sure all the dots are connected.
A crash caused by driver distraction or carelessness might ultimately look the same as one caused by vehicle failures or losing traction on a bad road, but obviously those are very different situations. It's not my intention to make excuses for anyone, only to ensure that responsibility lies where it truly belongs. At the very least everyone affected by the crash deserves to know that a careful and thorough investigation was conducted and only the facts tell the final story. Will police take the time and care needed to provide those facts?
