Commentary on Marco Antonio Elvir Wrong-Way Accident in Houston

Marco Antonio Elvir Killed, 2 Injured in Wrong-Way Accident in Houston, TX

While folks may be quick to assume crashes like this always involve alcohol, wrong-way collisions aren't all that common at this time of day. They're much more common between midnight and 3:00 a.m. when people are going home from a bar. As such, it's important to consider all possible factors here--especially considering there's a family in need of answers and others in need of help.

As common as alcohol is, wrong-way car accident can also happen due to things like medical conditions, insufficient signage or lighting, or even just simple absent-mindedness. If authorities aren't considering all of these possibilities, then the crash may be better off in the hands of more thorough independent investigators.
