Commentary on Lorena Paz-Alvarez Rollover Accident in Gaines County
A lot of people see a single-vehicle wreck and just assume the driver fell asleep at the wheel, was looking at their phone, or was drunk. Common as some factors may be, though, all other factors are worth considering as well. Making sure there are clear answers needs to be a priority. After all, consider incidents like the GM ignition switch defect years ago. A lot of people died, but the public had no clear answers as to why until years of independent investigations shed light on what went wrong. Perhaps similar efforts could shine a light on what went wrong here, as well.
