We don't know what the factors are. Why don't we hold off on the speculation and leave the judgement to the judges?

Three men killed after driving off the road and into a creek in Rosebud County have been identified.
Rosebud County Coroner Allen Fulton identified the men as Kiever Rogers, 21; Lance Nass, 19; and Christopher Gulden, 20, all of Miles City.
The three were with Matthew Bustle, 24, who survived the crash and remains in a Billings hospital. Bustle was undergoing surgery, Fulton said.
It is unknown who was driving.
Montana Highway Patrol disptachers said the four were riding in a 1999 Plymouth Breeze eastbound on Route 446 near Rosebud at about 2:30 a.m. on Monday.
The men drove around a road-closed detour and into a construction zone where a bridge was out.
The vehicle fell down into a creek bed and came to rest on its roof.
The crash was reported at 8 a.m. Monday by a person driving by on the way to school. All four men were still inside the vehicle when they were found.
Fulton would not specify whether the men died from injuries from the crash or from being in the water. Autopsies have been performed, he said.
The crash is still being investigated.
