Commentary on Daniel Mott Single-Vehicle Accident in Randall County
It is at least somewhat encouraging that authorities brought up possible medical conditions here, as they usually just assume the driver did something wrong. A lot of people share that hastiness, which is why I try to address accidents like these whenever possible. Besides, whether or not the driver did anything wrong, there can still be unusual circumstances requiring further investigations. For example, faulty airbags or seatbelts can lead to people being seriously hurt when they otherwise should have been okay. Vehicles can roll too easily or fail to hold up appropriately. Likely or not, a proper investigation wouldn't let things like that slip through the cracks. Were investigators here equally thorough?
