My concern here is whether or not there's more to the story authorities may have overlooked. I certainly don't know more than what's publicly available, but it's a concern I have anytime there's a wreck involving a teenage driver. Simply put, people are quick to blame teenagers for accidents even when they don't know all the facts. Authorities can unfortunately fall prey to this mindset, as well, and that can lead to important information slipping through the cracks. It wouldn't at all surprise me to see authorities here were thorough and were able to nail down exactly what happened here. That said, it wouldn't really surprise me if the opposite turned out to be true.
