Since there isn't any clear information on what happened here, it's clear there needs to be thorough investigations to make sure nothing important slips through the cracks. Too often, I see people who just assume single-vehicle wrecks are always the driver's fault. While I understand that driver error is common, let me explain why that's such an irresponsible way of looking at these—not to mention disrespectful to the victim's loved ones.

Consider the infamous GM ignition switch defect from years past. Estimates say it killed over a hundred people due to issues that a driver couldn't possible foresee. Yet the public didn't even know the defect existed for years. Was it preliminary police investigations that brought the issue to light? No. It was years of independent investigations from experienced professionals that eventually connected the dots and got those families the answers they deserved.

So without a clear body of evidence, no one should make hasty assumptions about what happened in this awful crash. Common or not, there's no telling what could come up in further investigations. That's why it's better for folks to avoid jumping to conclusions and instead focus on what best steps can be taken for the victim's loved ones.
