Commentary on Urfan and Kalsoom Khail Accident in Port Arthur

I don't have any particular reason to doubt what the news says happened here, but I've also seen preliminary reports miss important details often enough to wonder if there's more to the story. Failure to yield while turning was cited as the main reason for the crash, but did investigators look into anything else? What about road conditions? Vehicle malfunctions or defects? The pickup's speed? Anything else, inside or outside of the vehicles, that could have contributed to the crash?

I'm not suggesting I know things are more complicated than the narrative in reports, but I do know from long experience that sometimes if there's a "good enough" explanation that the investigation stops there and never really finds the truth. If police might have let something important slip through the cracks, should someone else have another look?
