Commentary on Virginia Raney, Bryson Stee Car Accident in Lamar County
One of the biggest issues I push back against on this blog is people jumping to conclusions without having all the facts. I've seen too many situations similar to this where a teenager is involved, and people immediately just assume they were being reckless or on their phone.
Now, what's the most likely explanation here? Well, cars crossing the center line--if that is what happened--is usually due to things like speeding or distracted driving. But are those the only possibilities? Of course not.
What about mechanical issues? What about a tire blowout? What a medical condition? What about another vehicle that left the scene? What if this stretch of road is inherently dangerous and tends to cause accidents? Put simply, it isn't about what's likely it's about families who deserve clear answers after suffering hardships that no one should have to go through.
I've helped many such families ensure they're getting the full story. Whether that results in a path for assistance or simply closure, I know others who have shared my experiences would agree that the focus should be on getting answers and not just looking for someone to blame.
