Just to be clear, I have absolutely no specific reason to doubt these reports. Perhaps this all was just the result of someone succumbing to fatigue. However, it's important to take reports like these with a grain of salt. They don't really say why authorities came to the conclusion they did. Did the victim admit to that explanation? Did their passenger? Were witnesses able to confirm this? Was the victim conscious and able to give their side of the story before being taken to the hospital? Was the collision with the 18-wheeler truly unavoidable, or could steps have been taken to avoid hitting the victim's vehicle? Were tests done to see if any medical conditions led to the crash? These are all just a few crucial questions to ask after a serious crash like this. Perhaps more thorough independent investigations would show there's more to this story than the initial reports would suggest.
