Commentary

It's simply too early to say what led to this unfortunate event. Was there another vehicle involved that's not being reported? Did the vehicle suffer some sort of tire blowout? Was the driver ejected from the vehicle due to a faulty safety belt?

We need to know the answers to these questions and more before we jump to conclusions. That's why a more thorough, subjective investigation needs to take place before we decide what caused this crash.

There's always the chance an independent investigation does little more than confirm the information in the police reports. Nonetheless, we owe it to the victim's family to confirm the answers to some of their more difficult questions.
