Commentary on Darryl Johnson Accident in Wood County

Reports can say little so far except that the driver left the road and hit a tree. Rainy conditions were mentioned, and that may be enough for some to conclude that the Honda lost traction on the wet road, but nothing has been concluded so far and it's important to weigh all the possible factors to get the truth. Was the Honda in good repair? Any malfunctions or defects? Could it have blown a tire? Is FM 514 designed poorly or dangerously somehow? Was the victim in good health, awake, alert, and paying careful attention to the road?

None of those are meant to suggest I know more than police have said. I read the same reports as everyone else, and the problem is that those reports contain few answers. Only time and careful investigation could say how this tragic accident really happened, but it's important to take the time and care needed to find out. That man's loved ones deserve no less than the whole truth.
