Commentary on Richard Garcia III Rollover Accident in Atascosa County
When it comes to a single-vehicle accident like this, my main concern is if it's getting the attention it deserves. Folks are generally too quick to jump to conclusions, and that's how important information slips through the cracks. As common as something like alcohol or distracted driving may be, mechanical issues, road hazards, medical conditions, fatigue, tire blowouts, and other such factors, likely or not, are worth attention. If nothing else, there's a family out there that deserves to know they're getting the full story.
