Commentary on Santa's Wonderland Bus Accident in College Station
People may read the preliminary details here and jump to some conclusions about what happened, but an accident like this can happen for many reasons. Sometimes a driver just makes a serious mistake and tragedy follows, but in many other cases something of everyone's hands--which isn't always detected by authorities--causes a crash.
Vehicle failures and defects, poor road conditions or design, bad visibility, medical emergencies...the list of possibilities goes on, and all of them deserve careful attention to be sure the truth is learned. Police don't always get to them all over the course of a "by the book" investigation, though, and in many cases crucial details slip through the cracks. That's why it's important to know what should be looked for--and who may stand the best chance of finding it.
