In early morning crashes like this, numerous possibilities exist as to what caused the accident: Fog, wet road, distractions inside and outside the vehicle. However, even if the roads were wet, or there was fog covering the roadway, that does not mean that some one was not the “cause” of the accident. For instance, if there were issued with wet roads, etc.. then the Texas Transportation codes provides that drivers are required to take certain measure to maintain the speed and control of their vehicle. This is a “duty” that is applied to all drivers regardless of driving conditions: you are required to maintain a safe speed and maintain control of your vehicle so as to protect yourself and other drivers on the road. Failure to do so can amount to not only negligence but negligence per se, and even gross negligence in limited circumstances.
