Commentary on Eric Aguirre Accident in Eagle Pass
The investigating officer noted that distraction on the Corolla driver's part was thought to be a key factor in the collision. That seems plausible enough given the way it reportedly happened, and I have no specific reason to argue with it, but at the same time I wonder if it's really the whole story. I've learned over the years that if police find a "good enough" explanation for a crash they may run with it and look no further, which often lets all sorts of important details slip through the cracks.
At the very least the person injured in the crash deserves to know he has the whole story. Would it be helpful for a more experienced professional with the time, tools, and training to have another look?
