Galveston County, TX — July 2, 2023, Cypress Duncan was killed as the result of a single-vehicle car accident at around 2:00 p.m. on F.M. 519.

Officials said in their initial statements that the crash happened in the area of F.M. 519 and Grant Street.

Cypress S. Duncan Killed in Car Accident in Texas City, TX

According to officials, 21-year-old Cypress Duncan was in a Ford Mustang traveling westbound along F.M. 519. For reasons unclear, the vehicle lost control, ran off-road, then crashed along the ditch. Duncan was thrown from the vehicle as a result, and he sustained fatal injuries.

Authorities did not mention anyone else being involved in the crash. There is also no confirmed cause for the accident. I can only hope authorities have actually given this awful event proper attention.

A lot of folks will read about a young driver and just assume they were being reckless. Even authorities can fall into this bias. That's obviously a possibility worth considering, but single-vehicle wrecks can also happen due to things like tire blowouts, road hazards, medical issues, and mechanical defects. If investigators are going to rule those out, it should be through evidence, not because of the driver's age. Were authorities prudent in their search for answers here?
