You can have the best teacher in the world but how much of his knowledge is transferred to and retained by the student depends on that students ability to learn and apply information in practice. Additionally we all make mistakes. Some make fewer than others. What happened with your wife could have happened regardless of how well she was taught to ride and even if she were experienced. Less likely but still can happen. A micro slip/lack of concentration will do that and there's nothing you can do about it unfortunately. You can only do your best to keep your wife safe and your best is also human so you too can make a mistake. I've been riding bikes for 15 years, had many, many crashes in that time but never anything serious and through those years I've learned that the only way to be certain you won't mess up on a bike is not to ride one at all.
