The investigation continues. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Crossover Accident on Texoma Pkwy in Grayson County

Police say this incident occurred after someone crossed left of center, but they're not sure yet why that happened in the first place. People may have their own theories about that, as many crossover accidents happen when a driver makes a mistake and loses control. Whether fingers are pointed at distraction, falling asleep, speeding, or something else, far too often the focus is on "what the driver did." However, what if there's more to the story?

People don't always realize that many factors--plenty of them out of a driver's hands--can cause a wreck like the one in Grayson County. Anything from slick roads to vehicle malfunctions or defects to sudden medical emergencies could have sent that car through the median, and if the driver had no control over it then it's obviously unfair to blame them. Think of it: How many people were wrongly blamed for crashes caused in their GM vehicles when a faulty ignition switch was the actual culprit?

I'm not saying it's impossible for this crash to have a simple explanation. I'm only saying it's important not to take anything for granted and give everyone the benefit of the doubt until things are clearer. It still remains to be seen if police efforts are enough to provide that clarity.
