Commentary on Jacquelin Gonzales Accident in Channelview

Folks tend to write off accidents between pedestrians and vehicles, saying "either the victim was in a crosswalk or they were at fault." Things are seldom that cut-and-dried when investigators take a closer look, though, and considering how few details preliminary reports have it seems like they need to here.

Could the accident be a simple if unfortunate matter of someone on foot where she shouldn't be? Maybe. However, what if there's more to it? How visible was she as she crossed the road? Where did she come from and where was she headed? How long was she in the road before the vehicle passed through? Investigators said the driver wasn't intoxicated--thank goodness--but were they awake, alert, and focused on the road?

I don't know more than reports say and I'm not suggesting otherwise. Things just aren't always as straightforward as they first sound. Do they have to be more complicated in Channelview? No, but if it's even possible that something was missed than that oversight must be addressed and any loose ends tied up. The victim's loved ones deserve to know they have the whole and true story, so I hope authorities were able to deliver it.
