Folks may not give a crash like this much thought. Frankly, when people see someone rear-end another vehicle, they just assume that driver was on their phone or speeding. Those are common factors, but I learned a long time ago that jumping to conclusions--however likely--is just plain irresponsible.

For all we know, this all was the result of something the victim couldn't necessarily avoid. Were there mechanical issues? Defects with the tires? Hazards relating to the roadway itself? A lack of lighting or other visibility issues? An extenuating circumstances like a faulty airbag or seatbelt?

Put simply, it's important that nothing slips through the cracks, and that often means looking into factors that may seem unlikely. I know if I lost a loved one in a crash, I'd want to be sure I was getting the full story. What good does it do, then, to jump to conclusions when there's a family out there that deserves to know they're getting the full story.
