Corby Scott Brown Killed in Car Accident in Hays County, TX

Hays County, TX — July 31, 2023, Corby Scott Brown was killed due to a single-vehicle car accident at around 5:15 p.m. along County Road 140.

Authorities said in their statements that the accident happened off the corner of C.R. 140/Post Road and C.R. 136/Old Stagecoach Road, between San Marcos and Kyle.

Officials said that 54-year-old Corby Brown was the driver of a Kia Rio going along southbound Post Road. Approaching the intersection, the vehicle somehow ended up going off-road where it crashed into a tree. The vehicle then caught fire.

Brown was pronounced deceased shortly after authorities arrived on-scene. There is no indication of anyone else being involved in the crash.

Right now, authorities mention unsafe speeds as a possible factor here. But I wonder if this is based on evidence or just gut instinct. One of the most challenging things about single-vehicle wrecks is folks often jump to conclusions. The driver was the only one involved, so they have to be to blame, right? While things like distraction and speeding are common, that doesn't warrant ignoring other possible factors, even if they may seem unlikely.

Mechanical issues, tire blowouts, medical emergencies, poor road design or a lack of signage, another driver who fled the scene—common or not, a family deserves to know they're getting the whole story. Hopefully authorities here have been more thorough than these preliminary statements suggest, but that's something I learned long ago not to take for granted.
