Commentary on John Taylor Single-Vehicle Accident in Trinity County
With single-vehicle wrecks, folks tend to assume they can't happen without the driver doing something wrong. As often as that's true, it's not always true. Those people forget about things like mechanical defects, tire blowouts, road hazards, medical conditions, etc. Even if a driver does do something wrong, it may not be the most serious factor to consider. Someone on their phone may still have a faulty seatbelt. A drunk driver may have been illegally over-served by a local establishment. Likely or not, a prudent investigator will consider all of these possibilities and ensure victims and families have as much opportunity as possible to get the help they deserve. Were those steps taken here?
