Commentary on Harris County Car Accident off Eastex Fwy

With single-vehicle wrecks, I always try to stress the importance of giving drivers the benefit of the doubt. It's always important to investigate any crash carefully and thoroughly to find the whole story, and while police mentioned some possible leads I hope they'll consider others as well when trying to learn how a woman lost her life.

Is it true that many single-vehicle accidents are the result of things like speeding, distraction, alcohol, or fatigue? Statistically speaking, yes--and I wouldn't suggest ignoring those possibilities here. However, even less-common possibilities (mechanical defects, medical emergencies, road hazards, tire blowouts, other drivers that fled the scene, etc.) warrant investigations from experienced professionals. Considering how few details can be confirmed right now, I can't help wondering if this accident got the attention it deserves.
