Paul Brungardt Killed in Truck Accident in Springdale, AR

When roads ice over, fatal collisions like this one are all too common. However, I caution folks against assuming that the crash was simply unavoidable due to the weather. It's still important to investigate the crash as one would without any hazardous weather conditions. Was speed a factor? Alcohol? A medical condition? Would a reasonably prudent truck driver have been able to avoid hitting the victim, or did this truck driver do all they could to avoid the crash? Was there some sort of mechanical issue? A tire blowout? It's entirely possible that investigations will show nothing unusual happened here, but taking steps to ensure the victim's loved ones know they're getting the full story should be a priority.
