Throughout my career, I've seen some surprising situations lead to someone getting hurt or killed which they couldn't have possibly avoided. It's one of the main reasons I'm always so careful to take early details with a grain of salt. Here, for example, authorities say the victim was crossing where it appears they would have had a stop sign. I don't have reason to doubt that, but it's still important to let the evidence speak for itself.

Not that long ago, for example, a colleague and I were discussing a crash out in West Texas which had similar reports to what I'm seeing here. Police in that incident said a man ran a stop sign, and a truck hit and killed him. After more thorough investigations, though, the facts proved to be highly unusual. It turned out TxDOT had removed those stop signs while working, and they forgot to replace them when they left. My colleague and I had the exact same question: How could the victim have run a stop sign that wasn't there?

I'm not at all trying to suggest something like that happened here, but if folks just took those initial reports at face value, the victim's loved ones may never have learned the truth. With all the families that have come to me over the years, I've seen just how important it is for them to hear that truth, if only to provide some sense of closure that police investigations weren't able to give them.
