Commentary on Mason Garret Justiss Single-Vehicle Accident in Lamar County
With single-vehicle wrecks, I always try to stress the importance of giving drivers the benefit of the doubt. Is it true this sort of thing is usually the result of things like speeding, distraction, alcohol, or fatigue? Sure, and I wouldn't suggest ignoring those possibilities here. But even less likely possible factors (e.g. mechanical defects, medical conditions, road hazards, tire blowouts, other drivers that fled the scene, etc.) warrant investigations from experienced professionals. With how few details can be confirmed right now, I can't help wondering if the crash ever got the attention it deserves.
