Commentary on Mayra Covarrubias, Efren Soto, Christian Kotas Car Accident in Dallas
With a serious crash like this, a key step for victims and families to take is ensuring the right people are looking into things. As thorough as authorities can be, they don't always have the experience and tools needed for serious accidents. As a result, important details victims and families need to get help can slip through the cracks. That's one of the reasons I'm always so adamant about independent investigations. Whether this is something common like distracted driving or alcohol or something less common like a mechanical defect, the key is to let the evidence speak for itself.
