Commentary on Marilyn Priddy Accident on I-20 in Hutchins

Before assuming that "losing control on wet roads" is all there is to say about this accident's cause, it's important to consider whether all the potential factors have really been accounted for. Knowing all the contributing elements of a crash is crucial, which means it's important to consider all the possibilities if only to rule them out. In Hutchins that might include things like the SUV's specific speed, the condition of its tires (were they worn out or defective?), its driver's health history, precisely what the big rig was doing at the time, and many other significant details--not to complicate things, just to be sure all the possible bases are well and truly covered.

Unfortunately law enforcement sometimes find an explanation they like and stick to it without much further investigation. They may be right that the victims just hydroplaned, but until that's confirmed by clear evidence or every other alternative is exhausted they deserve the benefit of the doubt. Making sure the whole story is learned sometimes takes efforts above and beyond police attention. Click below to learn more.
