Commentary on Carlius Brooks Accident in Longview

Police seem to think the injured man was responsible for this accident, and while I have no specific reason to doubt their findings I wonder if there's more to the story. People would be shocked to learn how many crucial details slip through the cracks during a "by the book" investigation--for instance, how many drivers were unfairly blamed for their crashes before the GM ignition switch defect was discovered?

Is it possible a simple and common driver mistake was behind this unfortunate crash and the injuries that followed? Certainly. Is that the only possible explanation, though? I highly doubt it. If there's any doubt or confusion about what happened in Longview, maybe someone else should look again and see if anything important slipped through the cracks. It's always best to know--and confirm--the truth.
