Commentary on Ray Smith Jr. Single-Vehicle Accident in Lamar County
When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks, no one would take me seriously if I said they weren't usually the result of something like distracted driving, speeding, or alcohol. Of course those are important factors to look into. The issue is that people often only consider those factors, and that's a mistake. Even authorities tend to overlook other possibilities they deem to be unlikely. It's no wonder things like mechanical defects, poor road design, medical conditions, and other such details typically only come to light thasnks to independent investigations. It's important folks take the time to understand this so they know just how vital independent investigations for getting people the help they need. I see no reason this crash would be an exception to this.
