Commentary on SUV/Apartment Accident near Gulf Fwy

After an accident like this where a vehicle hits a fixed object--particularly one as big and unmistakable as a building--it's not unusual to see people speculate about all the ways it "must" be the driver's fault. However, prematurely assuming that without thorough investigations would be irresponsible. Steps must always be taken to ensure other possible factors get attention, too. Vehicle failures or defects, road hazards or poor design (this is apparently not the first time such a crash has happened in the area), tire blowouts, other vehicles that left the scene...common or not, folks are best served understanding what possibilities must be investigated--and who may do the best job of it.
