Marek's injuries were described as incapacitating. The exact cause of the crash can't be confirmed at this time.

It's scary just how quickly something can take away control over one's vehicle. We can be as responsible as possible, but a sudden tire blowout, road hazard, medical emergency, or mechanical defect can make all of that care amount to naught.

Some folks, though, may be quick to just assume this driver was on their phone or intoxicated. Those are common factors, without a doubt. But I've helped many families over decades who had similar accusations levied at them or their loved ones only for evidence to prove they did nothing wrong. It's because authorities don't always give crashes like this the attention they deserve, so more complex factors tend to slip through the cracks unless they're caught by more experienced accident reconstructionists.

I can't help wondering whether or not those kinds of factors are slipping through the cracks here, as well.
