Commentary on Auto Accident on US-183 in Austin

Preliminary reports don't have much insight about exactly what happened here or why. I'm not coming down on police for not having all the dots connected so soon after the accident, but something like this can happen for a lot of different reasons. Some might involve someone making a mistake like taking their eyes off the road to send a text or even driving while intoxicated. Others might be wholly out of their hands, like losing traction on a wet road or a malfunctioning or defective vehicle going out of control.

Only a full and thorough investigation that accounts for all the possibilities could say with more certainty. I hope police are working on that now, but if they can't take the time or care to learn the whole story maybe someone else should. The people affected deserve no less.
