Commentary on Trooper, Truck Accident on I-87 in Westchester County

Trooper Truck Accident I-87 greenburgh Westchester County, NY

It's not really clear what happened here, but the reports saying a truck somehow hit a police cruiser that was on the shoulder obviously raises some red flags. Was the truck rounding a curve too fast? Was the driver distracted? Did the officer pull out into the roadway? Were there hazards in the road or some other condition the truck driver couldn't control? Does this particular company have a history of drivers causing accidents? Do they exercise proper training and maintain their vehicles well? There are just countless factors to investigate here, and even with a vested interest in the outcome, the police may have too much on their plates to properly dig into the details. That's why this may be yet another situation better off in the hands of independent accident reconstructionists.
