Authorities say the incident happened around 12:20 a.m. on FM 960 near FM 961. Preliminary investigation suggests Litzman was driving a Toyota Tacoma south on the roadway when he may have lost control for unconfirmed reasons. The pickup left the road and spun, then hit a concrete culvert while side-skidding. It overturned and rolled one or more times before crashing into a fence and coming to rest.
Litzman suffered a serious eye injury and was transported to an area hospital.

I tell people all the time how important it is to keep an open mind after just about any wreck, no matter what kind of picture preliminary reports make. In many cases the story they tell may seem pretty cut-and-dried, but I've lost count of the times where another look found crucial information that went unnoticed the first time around.
That doesn't mean I know more than authorities or that I'm arguing with their findings; I'm just speaking from long experience helping crash victims and their families learn the whole story. Could there still be missing pieces to the puzzle in Wharton County?
