It's not exactly unusual for a serious accident to have so few details available. However, I can't help feeling like the news I see out of Austin is notoriously sparse when it comes to giving clear information. Why is that? Am I not seeing the right sources? Are authorities reluctant to share information with the public? Are they not prioritizing accident investigations? There could be safety concerns the community deserves to know, and failing to address them could lead to further harm. Are there locals that share these concerns? There's no doubt at least one person in the hospital right now that no doubt deserves some answers.
