Commentary on William Trachta Accident near Alvord

With single-vehicle wrecks, I always try to stress the importance of giving drivers--who are most often the victims--the benefit of the doubt. Is this sort of accident often caused by things like speeding, distraction, alcohol, or fatigue? Statistically speaking yes, and I wouldn't suggest ignoring those possibilities as investigators try to work out what happened on Old Decatur Road.

However, even less-common factors (e.g. mechanical defects, medical conditions, road hazards, tire blowouts, other drivers that fled the scene, etc.) warrant careful consideration and investigation. It remains to be seen if police efforts alone are enough to get the victim's loved ones the answers and help they need and deserve.
