Commentary on Pedestrian Accident on I-35 in Austin

It's much too early to say what happened here, but obviously it's never a good thing to learn a car--let alone several--hit someone. I hope police are hard at work figuring it out, but I admit to some misgivings about exactly how much they'll actually learn. That's not to knock their hard work, but in many cases waiting for their reports isn't the best option.

Between competing priorities, limited staff and resources, and only so many hours in the day, officers must sometimes rush through their investigations. If they don't give an accident the careful attention it deserves, crucial details may slip through the cracks and their reports might be incomplete or even wrong. Maybe that won't be an issue here and police will get to the bottom of things, but the people who lost a loved one here deserve to know the whole story. If there's anything else to do besides bring them that, it would depend on what is discovered.
