Commentary on Amanda Martinez Accident in Bell County

Before assuming that "losing control on wet roads" is all there is to say about this accident's cause, it's important that all its potential factors be accounted for. Knowing all the elements of a crash is crucial, which means it's important to consider every possibility if only to rule it out. In Bell County that might include things like the car's exact speed, if it had any malfunctioning parts or defects, the condition of its tires, the victim's health history, whether the truck driver could have done anything differently, and many other significant details--not to complicate things, just to be sure all the possible bases are well and truly covered.

Unfortunately law enforcement sometimes find an explanation they like and stick to it without much further investigation. They may be right that the victim just hydroplaned and things took a tragic turn from there, but until every alternative is exhausted she deserves the benefit of the doubt. More than that, her loved ones deserve to know no stone was left unturned to get the whole story.
