Commentary on Benjamin Kitchens Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident in Lubbock

Folks sometimes think that I go on this blog looking for people to blame, but they may be surprised to see how often I'm obligated to do just the opposite. With a crash like this, for example, it wouldn't surprise me if folks just assumed the victim did something wrong. Not only is that the common reaction to single-vehicle wrecks, it's even more prevalent when the driver is a teenager.

As common as it may be for driver error to lead this crash, jumping to conclusions isn't going to help anyone. That's especially true if authorities failed to investigate other less common but still important factors, such as mechanical issues or road hazards. The question, then, is if steps were taken here to give this young man the benefit of the doubt or if more thorough investigations will be necessary to get all the facts.
