Commentary on Ying Yu Swatzel Truck Accident in Montgomery County
I certainly don't have any reason to doubt these initial reports, but something I talk about a lot on this blog is the importance of taking early reports with a grain of salt. As straight-forward as these details may seem, I don't take these reports to be the exception. There's simply no telling what other factors could be involved that have yet to be brought to light.
For example, there was a crash a while back in which a woman reportedly ran a red light, and an 18-wheeler t-boned her vehicle. Plenty of people in the comments were quick to talk about the dangers of things like texting and driving, fiddling with the stereo, and other common reasons a crash like that can happen. Weeks later, however, investigators also determined that the 18-wheeler had been going about 20 MPH over the speed limit.
Did that excuse the woman for going through a red light? Of course not, but 20 MPH in a fully loaded 18-wheeler can be the difference between life and death. That's why it's important to make sure investigations are handled by experienced professionals who know that there are no possibilities worth overlooking when it comes to getting people the help they deserve. What possible factors, if any, an investigations like those may uncover here remains to be seen.
