Commentary on Orlando Zuniga Car Accident in Navarro County
The trouble with single-vehicle wrecks is people are quick to jump to conclusions and blame the driver. While many situations like this are due to driver error, there's no good reason to make assumptions. It only allows for more complex factors to go unnoticed, and that can be extremely harmful to the victims and families.
Take for example a situation I was discussing with a colleague recently. Police said a man ran a stop sign and caused a truck wreck. Weeks later, though, it came to light that TxDOT removed that stop sign while working but forgot to put it back. So how did someone run a sign that wasn't even there? Unusual as that is, experienced investigators know to leave room for these possibilities, and that's why they're often the better approach for crashes like this one.
