Commentary on Ma De La Luz Villarreal, Alma Ramos, Guadalupe Montoya, Gerardo Montoya Car Accident in Lamb County

Considering the sheer devastation surrounding this awful event, it isn't entirely surprising that authorities haven't concluded anything publicly yet. A deadly crash can be complex enough without so many people being involved. My concern, though, is people may be quick to assume that this was all due to the weather. I can't tell you how many times reports came across my desk where police ended up blaming rain or snow, yet more thorough independent investigations would reveal things like distracted driving, tire blowouts, mechanical defects, medical emergencies, other drivers that left the scene, etc. Hopefully this crash makes its way into the hands of professionals who can ensure nothing like that goes overlooked here.
