Commentary on Michael Robles 18-wheeler Accident in Port Lavaca

While folks may see this as an open-and-shut story, things may not be so simple. If it's true that someone ran a red light and caused a crash, that's obviously serious. I wouldn't suggest ignoring something like that. But the fact there were technically two collisions can mean there are other serious issues to look into.

When experienced accident reconstructionists look at a situation like this, they will certainly dig into why someone ran a red light and how significant a factor that was in someone being seriously hurt. However, they'll also dig into the second collision. Was that the more serious crash? Was it avoidable, and that other driver was doing something to impair their ability to react in time? Or, did the initial collision make that second crash completely unavoidable?

Perhaps police were more thorough than these reports suggest, but when someone is in serious need of assistance, steps should always be taken too make sure they're getting the full story.
