Commentary on Oscar Munoz Accident in Austin

When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks like this, one of my main concerns is always whether or not it's getting the attention it deserves. People, even authorities sometimes, may automatically (and unfairly) assume the driver did something wrong. That's possible, of course, and operator errors like falling asleep or speeding contribute to far too many similar wrecks. However, they can't be taken for granted before other possibilities get attention as well.

Mechanical issues, road hazards, other drivers who left the scene, tire defects, medical emergencies--likely or not, people need to understand there are all kinds of reasons a crash like this may happen. Jumping to conclusions only serves to further harm the people who already lost a loved one in this tragic incident. That's why I generally ensure independent investigators look into these matters so nothing gets overlooked. Until all the facts are in it's best to withhold judgment or theories.
