Commentary on Maxwell Bucher Single-Vehicle Accident in Reeves County
Too often, I find myself pushing back against all kinds of assumptions that the drivers in single-vehicle wrecks must have done something wrong. Frankly, that is the most likely explanation, considering things like alcohol and distracted driving. But what about other possibilities? Did authorities look into mechanical defects? Road hazards? Medical conditions? Other drivers that left the scene? Tire blowouts?
Likely or not, these things can easily lead to a deadly wreck, but they usually require more thorough independent investigations to properly consider. Getting a family the answers they deserve should be a priority, which is why I always like to see accidents like this in the hands of independent professionals who know what to look for.
