Commentary on Lubbock Car Accident at 114th and Memphis

When a single-vehicle crash like this happens in a college town like Lubbock, people may be quick to reach their own conclusions about its cause. I've lost count of the accidents I've come across where people quickly point fingers at speeding, distraction from a cell phone, or even (for the cynical) driving while impaired.

Those and other driver mistakes cause a lot of accidents and they're important to consider during a full investigation--particularly impairment, which might have some further implications people aren't always aware of. HOWEVER, just because they're possible doesn't mean they can be taken for granted. There are many other factors, both common and less so, that could just as easily have contributed to or even caused this crash. That's why it's important to investigate carefully and ensure no critical details slip through the cracks. Will police efforts alone be enough to find the whole story?
