Kyle Bishop Dies in Austin, TX, Single-Vehicle Accident

Austin, TX -- December 21, 2016, Kyle Jared Bishop was killed following an accident where his vehicle somehow careened off the road and crashed.

Austin-Travis County emergency crews responded to the accident scene at about 5:45 a.m. near the intersection of Ben White Boulevard and 1st Street.

Preliminary accident investigations have indicated that 36-year-old Bishop was traveling alone down Ben White in a Toyota Camry. For reasons that aren't clear, his vehicle lost control and veered off the roadway. Before Bishop could stop the vehicle, it crashed into a concrete pillar.

Bishop sustained fatal injuries in the accident and died at the scene. Authorities have yet to indicate what might have caused the accident.

Additional details are pending further investigation.

There tends to be a misconception with single-vehicle accidents that I encounter quite often. This misconception is that the driver is always at fault for a single-vehicle accident. This might be true in many cases where drivers are texting or speeding or intoxicated. However, this is not always the case, and therefore should not be applied to every crash.

Our firm has represented several cases in the past where the driver had little to no control over the factors that caused their vehicle to crash. Sometimes it's something like a tire blowout or brake failure, and sometimes it's things like poorly maintained roads or debris falling into the roadway. Our blog has talked about this subject many times in the past. This article goes more in-depth on how an experienced car accident attorney approaches single-vehicle accidents.

The thing to take away from this is not that drivers are never at fault for their accident. The point is that they aren't always at fault. It's not fair to those affected by car accidents to fill in missing information with assumptions and conjecture. They deserve the benefit of the doubt until investigations look into all of the evidence surrounding an accident. Only then can conclusions be drawn and steps forward made.
