Commentary on Melissa OBryant Accident in Eldorado

Police think failure to yield was a key factor in this collision, and while I have no specific reason to doubt their word I wonder if that's really all there is to the story. People would be stunned how often crucial details slip through the cracks during a "by the book" investigation--for instance, how many drivers were unfairly blamed for making mistakes before the GM ignition switch defect was discovered?

Is it possible a simple and unfortunate driver error like failure to yield was behind this crash? Of course. Is that the only possible explanation, though? I highly doubt it. If police found a plausible explanation and closed the books without further efforts, maybe someone else should look again and see if anything was missed.
