Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident on East Cottonwood in Ector County

Something I talk about a lot is how important it is to avoid jumping to conclusions after a single-vehicle wreck. As common as driver error is, there are other less common factors to consider, as well. I would not consider an accident involving a 15-year-old driver an exception to that. It is understandable that the likely explanation is that the probably inexperienced driver made a mistake. But other possibilities are worth investigation. Mechanical issues, tire blowouts, road hazards, other drivers who left the scene--at the end of the day, a kid lost their life. There is no possibility too unlikely to consider when ensuring their loved ones get the answers they deserve. It remains to be seen if authorities are of the same opinion.
