Commentary on Rollover Accident on 50th Street in Lubbock
There isn't a lot of clear information yet about how exactly this crash happened or what caused it, but any accident that causes injuries deserves careful investigation. That may involve considering both common and uncommon potential factors, such as:
- Operator errors like distraction, unsafe lane changes, or speeding;
- Problems or defects in the vehicles;
- Road and weather conditions;
- Visibility and sightlines;
- Other traffic in the area; and
- Anything else that might have influenced or caused the crash.
Some may not think it's important to clarify every last detail, but it's always best to know the entire story. Unfortunately police investigations alone may not be enough to get that, which is why after serious accidents like this I often suggest a second look by independent experts. Sometimes they only confirm what authorities originally thought, but in many cases they uncover new details that change how a wreck is understood and what might follow it. Whatever is learned, the people affected deserve to know no stone was left unturned.
