Commentary on Truck Accident at RC Tire in Duchesne
Authorities mention weather as a factor here, and it's always important not to simply write that off. Weather can be a common target for insurance companies looking to minimize their responsibility, saying that the weather made the vehicle lose control and not the driver. Now, this is based in a legitimate defense called the Act of God Defense. Essentially, someone can't be responsible for natural events beyond their control. However, saying that something like some snow, rain, or fog makes a vehicle uncontrollable is simply laughable. Every driver has a responsibility to adjust their behavior for the weather conditions, and commercial truck drivers are far from the exception to that. In fact, the law generally holds them to a higher standard. So, then, are investigators taking steps to find out what really led to this accident?
