Commentary on Lorena Paz-Alvarez Accident in Gaines County
When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks, I understand why people may be quick to jump to conclusions. Little as I like saying it, statistically most of them happen because the driver made a mistake like speeding or getting distracted. However, just because those are commonly behind such accidents doesn't mean they can be taken for granted. There are other factors worth considering, even if they seem unlikely. From hazardous roads to medical emergencies to defective vehicle parts, a lot of things can send a car off the road unexpectedly--and blaming a driver for something out of her hands would be unjust.
Ensuring a crash gets the attention it deserves is generally the best way know the whole story and to get the people affected by it the help they need. This crash seems like no exception, so will police ensure the victim's loves ones get answers?
