Commentary

Media reports are usually just pared down edits of police reports. And police reports are often conducted with few resources by inexperience officers. Factor into this the potential for human error and you're left with missing facts and a glut of misinformation.

I say this not to impugn the work of police enforcement officers. The fact is their departments are frequently woefully underfunded, coupled with the reality they're stretched to the limit covering a large amount of accidents on our roadways.

Thankfully, victims of car accidents and those they leave behind are in no way obligated to rely on government resources to get answers to their questions. Many experienced, professional accident reconstructionists are available who have the necessary resources, and the know how to accrue all the facts in car accident cases.

In this regard, car accidents are similar to receiving a life-changing medical diagnosis. Most in the general public would seek a second opinion.
