Commentary on Fiery Crash on SH 87 in Fairmount

Preliminary reports like these are why I so often caution people against thinking police or the news give them everything fit to know right away. There are few available details, and while I'm not coming down on investigators for not having all the dots connected so soon it does mean that nobody can really say what happened here yet.

Hopefully police efforts will be enough to figure that out and determine who or what caused the fiery wreck, but I've also seen more than enough "by the book" investigations fall short of finding the whole story. Is there a danger of important details slipping through the cracks in Fairmount, and should someone else step in to ensure the victim(s) have all the facts if they're need down the road?
