Commentary on Bagwell Woman 18-wheeler Accident on Main Street in Clarksville

I sometimes have folks come to me with crashes like this almost as a way to challenge my claims on this blog that all serious truck wrecks deserve attention, and jumping to conclusions isn't going to help anyone. What about a crash like this? The reports say the victim caused the accident and even that there's video footage of it. How could there possibly be anything else to discuss? Well, in all likelihood, there's not. But sometimes there are unusual extenuating circumstances that initial reports overlook.

For example, a colleague brought up an unusual case the other day in which a woman was texting and driving and rear-ended a semi. However, the collision was at relatively low speeds, yet the woman had serious injuries. After further investigations, it eventually came to light that se had a defective airbag. So while she may have caused the crash, her injuries were the result of a mechanical defect she couldn't possible have prevented.

I'm not saying anything like that happened here, but we in the public only get a glimpse of the much larger picture. That's why even a crash like this warrants some benefit of the doubt until it's clear that those affected by the crash know all the facts.
