Commentary on Nancy Rodriguez, Veronica Camacho Car Accident in Madison County
When it comes to a deadly car accident, it's important folks understand that proper investigations are more than just checking speeds, right of way, and cell phone records. One of the reasons I learned long ago not to rely solely on the authorities is because it often takes more thorough independent investigations to catch serious issues. Faulty airbags, medical conditions, alcohol, road hazards, tire blowout, improper road design or maintenance--any one of those things could contribute to a deadly crash like this. Likely or not, the families affected by this awful event deserve to know they're getting the full story regardless of who or what caused it. Are those steps being taken here?
