Commentary on Lubbock Car Accident on South Loop 289
It's not exactly clear what happened here yet. Hopefully investigators are trying hard to fill in the blanks (Why was the first car on the roadside? Why did the other car hit it? How dark is that area at night? Were there witnesses?), as the people affected deserve to understand the circumstances of how they got hurt. The most important thing is to get them answers; anything else might depend on what those answers are.
