Commentary on Motorcycle Deputy Vehicle Accident on Rothwood in Harris County

It isn't entirely clear what all led up to this awful event, but any crash involving a motorcyclist is sure to bring some unique challenges. Folks are often too quick to just blame the victim and move on. Especially at 1:00 a.m., that is certainly common. But I always talk about the importance of considering all the facts, and I don't draw the line at motorcyclists.

Any experienced law enforcement official can attest that there are all kinds of unusual factors that can lead to a crash like this. Whether it's speed, a medical; condition, a bar over-serving the victim, defective tires, poorly maintained city roads, or any other such factor, letting the evidence speak for itself is crucial in getting a grieving family the answers they deserve. Are those steps being taken here?
