People may read the preliminary details here and blame the victim without much extra thought. I'd imagine various theories about driver distraction, speeding, or even falling asleep at the wheel started floating around soon after the information was released.

It's true that operator errors like those are commonly behind crashes like the one on Mearns Meadow, but that doesn't mean they or anything else can truly be taken for granted. For all anyone knows right now the wreck could have been caused by bad weather, slick roads, a blown tire, a vehicle malfunction or defect, swerving to avoid a dog or child running through the street, or any number of other factors that would have been completely out of the driver's hands. Until they and other possibilities get due consideration no one can be sure how this tragedy occurred.

That's why it's important to conduct a careful and thorough investigation, and while that's under way no one should jump to any conclusions. Only facts and evidence should tell the story, so until they can it's best to withhold judgment and focus instead on what can be done to help that man's loved ones through a hard time.
