Right now, authorities say they do not suspect alcohol was a factor, and other factors remain unclear. This is actually quite significant to see. The vast majority of crashes like this involve drunk drivers. But anyone who has read my blog before knows that I always push back against jumping to conclusions, and wrong-way collisions are no exception to that.

Here in Dallas, for example, there used to be a big problem with wrong-way collisions on one of our tollways. It became clear that alcohol was not the only contributing factor (significant as it was), so local officials increased the lighting and signage along the tollway. The approach worked, and there was a reduction in the frequency of wrong-way collisions there. Maybe there's a similar issue along this roadway which needs to be addressed.
