Right now, the cause of the crash is unclear. But something makes me wonder if authorities are giving the incident the attention it deserves. I've seen statements saying they're looking into why the Jeep was "in the wrong lane." That would obviously be important after a wrong-way crash, but is that really what happened?

It's incredibly unusual to see a wrong-way collision just before noon rather than late at night or early in the morning. What's more, this isn't a divided roadway, which also isn't that common. It makes me wonder if this was actually a crossover wreck rather than a "wrong way" crash necessarily.

As much as that may seem like a nitpick, the wording of a crash can conjure up all kinds of possible factors in people's minds. It only makes it that much more crucial to ensure there are clear facts there to tell the full story. Hopefully authorities are being more thorough than these preliminary reports suggest.
