I talk a lot about single-vehicle wrecks like the one described here. Why is that? Aren't they pretty straight-forward? Not as much as folks would think. While it's true they're usually the result of things like alcohol, cell phone, usage, or speeding, there are many other possibilities that even authorities tend to overlook.
Were there mechanical issues? Was the driver over-served by a bar? Did a tire blow out due to a defect? Was there something wrong with the road itself? Did another driver cause the crash and leave the scene? If authorities aren't asking these questions and more, they're likely not getting the full story.
