Mario Lawson Injured in Car Accident on US-67 in Naples, TX

Naples, TX — December 7, 2022, 51-year-old Mario Lawson was seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 67 in Morris County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 5:15 p.m. on US-67 near Pine Street. Preliminary investigation suggests Lawson was driving a Chevy Spark west on the highway in the outside lane when he may have lost control for unknown reasons. The Chevy swerved through the eastbound lanes and off the road, hit the bar ditch, and skidded before rolling over several times. It hit a sign near some railroad tracks and came to rest on its side.

Lawson suffered serious injuries in the accident.

No further information is currently available.

I've lost count of the times I've had to caution folks against jumping to any hasty conclusions after a single-vehicle accident like this one. A common-but-mistaken belief is that if there was only one vehicle, then the person at its wheel messed up somehow. Police investigators even seem to skew that direction at a crash scene, and many preliminary reports hastily point to speeding or drinking as factors.

Is it possible that operator error was behind this accident? Maybe. Could there be more to the story, though? Absolutely, and that's why it's so important to investigate carefully and thoroughly. Would it really be fair to blame the victim if they crash was beyond his control? What if his vehicle malfunctioned or blew a tire? Could it have hit a bad patch of road and lost traction? Did he have a sudden medical emergency that incapacitated him?
