With a situation like this, it's very likely that speed caused the crash. However, overlooking other possibilities simply wouldn't be responsible. Commercial trucks can be quite a bit more complex than the average passenger vehicle. As a result, authorities don't always have the right tools or training to consider less common factors like mechanical issues. That's one of the reasons independent accident reconstructionists are such an important tool after truck wrecks like this. Were steps taken here to make sure nothing important slipped through the cracks?
