Commentary on Vincente Francisco Nandin Wrong-Way Accident in Tom Green County
There are a lot of details in the news which muddy the waters on what exactly may have happened here. I know folks are likely to jump to all kinds of conclusions, but my experience taught me long ago to let the evidence speak for itself. Wrong way collisions raise all kinds of red flags, but I wouldn't rule out something like medical conditions or lack of signage without knowing all the facts. Is it possible details eventually show the driver was just fatigued or perhaps intoxicated? Absolutely, but jumping to conclusions is only going to make things worse for the grieving family. One way or the other, it's best serious wrecks like this are in the hands of experienced professionals who can ensure the family gets the answers they deserve.
