Commentary on Tyler Houghton Single-Vehicle Accident in Hunt County
One of the biggest misconceptions I deal with on this blog is that single-vehicle wrecks are always 100% the drivers' fault. That's often true, considering things like speeding and distracted driving. Is it always true though? Of course not.
The law is nuanced enough to consider all possibilities. Were there mechanical issues? Road hazards? A tire blowout? Was the driver over-served by a bar? Was there another driver involved that left the scene? If authorities aren't asking those questions, that can mean important information is slipping through the cracks.
