Commentary on Rafeal Castro Single-Vehicle Accident in Houston

Just imagine all the people killed be the infamous GM ignition switch defect. How many people assumed they got themselves killed when those drivers were entirely unsuspecting victims? Likely or not, a crash like this is generally best off in the hands of independent investigators who will help ensure nothing important slips through the cracks.
