Whenever a crash happens where a truck turns in front of an oncoming vehicle, people are sometimes skeptical when I say there are reasons a truck driver may do so without actually doing anything wrong. If these reports are accurate, this could be a good example. Someone racing can easily close distance so quickly a truck driver thinks they have enough time to turn. That said, just as I would give a potential faulty truck driver the benefit of the doubt, I would also give an alleged street racer the benefit of the doubt until all the facts are clear. The fact of the matter is police reports miss things from time to time. That could very well be what happened here. When people are seriously hurt, it's best to avoid jumping to conclusions until the facts are abundantly clear.
