Commentary on Arlington Blount Jr. Car Accident in Houston
People tend to jump to conclusions after single-vehicle wrecks, and that can cause serious struggles for those involved who deserve to know they're getting the full story. Folks may see an early morning single-vehicle wreck and just assume that the driver must have done something wrong. Frankly, that's a common scenario. But experienced investigators know there are all kinds of reasons something like this can happen, and drivers can't always avoid those. Unlikely or not, there's a family out there that deserves answers. My experience makes me skeptical police investigations alone will get them those answers.
