The news suggests the victim lost control while trying to avoid another vehicle, triggering the chain of events that ended with her in the hospital. I have no particular reason to doubt what police say happened, but I've also done this long enough to wonder whether there's more to the story they might have missed. Most wrecks aren't nearly as simplistic as a few sentences in the news make them sound, and anybody hurt in one deserves to know no stone was left unturned to find the whole story. Will authorities make sure that happens for the Montgomery County victim?
