Commentary on Robert Redman Accident in Midland

Preliminary reports say the victim of this accident failed to yield at the intersection, where thru-traffic on Neely Avenue has no stop sign. I have no particular reason to doubt police findings about that, but are we really sure they considered all the possible factors here before simply pointing fingers at the rider? This wouldn't be the first time I've seen a motorcyclist blamed for a crash primarily because of public bias against "reckless daredevil riders," only for everyone to find out later that other factors were involved.

Does the wreck have to be more complicated than one person failing to yield to another? No, but I would argue that other possibilities still deserve careful attention. The victim's loved ones deserve no less than the whole story, so will police get it for them or are they content with their "good enough" story and ready to move on?
