Aurora Cisneros Killed in White County, AR, Car Accident

White County, AR -- May 27, 2017, Aurora Cisneros was killed as the result of an accident where her vehicle crashed off the roadway.

The Arkansas State Police released preliminary information regarding the fatal incident. They say that the crash took place at around 3:17 a.m. along US Highway 67, just north of Beebe.

Investigators reported that 21-year-old Cisneros was driving a 2008 Nissan along the northbound lanes of US 67 at the time. As she did so, the vehicle somehow lost control and went off the side of the road. As a result, it collided with several trees before eventually overturning.

Cisneros suffered fatal injuries in the crash and died at the scene. A passenger from her vehicle was ejected, sustaining unspecified injuries. That person was taken to Unity Health in Searcy.

The exact cause of the accident is still under investigation at this time.

Commentary

When some people read accidents like this--young driver, early morning, single-vehicle accident--they tend to jump to the conclusion that the driver was at fault for the accident. This is certainly a possibility, considering common causes for these accidents to be driver-error. However, it's not fair to jump to conclusions without any evidence to support them. Assuming the driver is at fault for an accident like this is not only unfair to those affected by the incident, it can also be detrimental to actually determining what happened.

Take, for example, when these sorts of accidents are caused by product defects (e.g. GM's ignitions switch controversy or Ford's SUV rollovers several years ago). In most of these cases, the actual issue was a mistake on the manufacturer's part and was a problem which drivers had no control over. This means that many people who were killed or hurt as a result had no way of foreseeing the accident happening. Unfortunately, issues such as manufacturing defects are very difficult to detect when not examined by an experienced professional. The result is that a lot of the people affected by those accidents were left in the dark on what truly caused the accident, and only after gaining the aid of an experienced private investigator were they able to uncover the truth.

Now just imagine how many people read early, incomplete reports of those rollovers and automatically assumed the driver was drunk or speeding or falling asleep at the wheel when in fact they had no control over the accident whatsoever. If the victims and families affected by those accidents hadn't taken it upon themselves to seek professional assistance, they might have never known the truth, and more people might have been affected by similar accidents.

Am I saying something like that happened in this accident? Not exactly; what I'm saying is it could have. It could have been a product defect, it could have been driver error, it could have been a deer in the road--the point is that we simply don't know at this time. I just feel the need to emphasize to people that jumping to conclusions after an accident like this doesn't do anybody any good. What does help is ensuring that investigations are thorough and conducted by an experienced professional. That way, any and all factors--regardless of how unlikely they may be--can be carefully considered and the full story can come to light.
