Commentary on Transit Bus Accident on MacCorkle Avenue in Kanawha County
It's possible the lack of information here is just the authorities being prudent, but could it be that they're not really clear on what happened? I've handled just about any commercial vehicle wreck one could imagine, and the amount of times official reports missed something important is pretty staggering. Most of the time, the authorities are so deep in other priorities and lacking in proper equipment for a commercial vehicle wreck that even experienced, skilled officers can only do so much. That's one of the reasons I always rely on independent investigators after an accident like this. From mechanical issues to cell phone usage to hazardous road design, they help to ensure that all possible factors get the attention they deserve. Are those steps being taken here?
