Commentary on Auto Accident on SH 30 in Grimes County

People may read that one driver allegedly lost control and assume there's little else to say before deciding who's at fault. However, it's important to recognize that police haven't said how or why the pickup went out of control. Jumping to conclusions about the driver making a mistake like falling asleep or drifting while looking at his phone are unfair as investigators continue to connect the dots. Anything from slick roads to vehicle malfunctions to a medical emergency could have sent that truck out of its lane, and if the wreck was out of the driver's hands it certainly wouldn't be fair to blame him.

Am I saying this wreck has to be more complex? Not at all. However, the years have taught me that many accidents are misunderstood or hastily judged after a few vague sentences in the news give folks only a hazy idea of what went down. As always, though, it's best to ensure only clear facts tell the story. Will police efforts alone be enough to get those?
