Even if a driver was going the speed limit before a crash, they could be held at fault in an accident. Every driver must operate their vehicle according to the prevailing conditions. What is safe during one time may not be safe during a rainstorm.
Water can cause vehicles to hydroplane and lose control. The state of a road can make this problem worse.
