Commentary on Michael Vargas Single-Vehicle Accident in Falls County
With single-vehicle wrecks, my main concern is whether or not they're getting the attention they deserve. Folks tend to just assume that the driver must have done something wrong. Common as that may be, it's important to consider other possibilities, as well. A single vehicle wreck can be due to anything from cell phone usage to a tire blowout to medical conditions to being over-served by a bar to a manufacturing defect in the vehicle. Likely or not, an investigation that doesn't consider these possibilities isn't thorough enough--period. Did authorities ever look into these possibilities, or could there be more to this story?
