Commentary on Austin Rollover Crash on FM 1626 in Austin

There isn't much information yet about how exactly this crash happened or what caused it, but given the serious injuries that followed a careful investigation seems in order. To find the whole story police should look into many possible factors like driver mistakes (speeding, distraction), problems or defects in the vehicles, sightlines, road and weather conditions, signage and road markings, and any other potential issues that might have contributed to or caused the wreck.

Until more information is available and the picture is clearer it's best not to jump to conclusions, but the years have taught me that a "by the book" police investigation might not find all the relevant details before it wraps up. That's why after serious accidents like this I often suggest independent investigations by experienced professionals to better ensure the whole truth is found. Whatever is learned, those affected deserve to know that no stone was left unturned.
