Commentary on James Bernard McGilveary Dump Truck Accident in Fort Worth

These reports obviously raise red flags when they say the victim's vehicle was behaving "recklessly" prior to the collision. For most folks, that's going to lead them to assume that the driver was either on their phone, fatigued, or drunk. These obviously warrant consideration, especially alcohol which can involve a local provider if they illegally over-served the victim and contributed to the crash. But what about less common factors?

James Bernard McGilveary Dump Truck Accident Fort Worth, TX

Did the driver experience a medical emergency? Did the vehicle have any defects? Who exactly saw the victim's vehicle driving recklessly? Were there multiple witnesses, or just the surviving truck driver? Was there debris or other hazards in the road? The fact of the matter is these reports don't tell us much. Still, I too often see people ready to blame victims without actually having the evidence to do so. That's why I read about accidents like this and do what I can to remind people that only facts from a proper accident reconstruction can truly say what went wrong here. Are steps being taken to make sure professionals look into the details here?
