Commentary on Christopher Ortiz Car Accident in Ward County
When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks, a big problem I have is with people just jumping to conclusions. They tend to assume the driver must have done something wrong. That's especially true with teenagers. While things like speeding and texting and driving are common, proper investigations will consider even unlikely circumstances such as mechanical defects, tire blowouts, road hazards, and even other drivers that fled the scene. Are those things being looked into here? Instead of trying to blame the victim, shouldn't we be focusing on getting the victim's loved ones the answer and they help they deserve?
