Commentary on Allan Leachman Accident on TX-315 in Panola County

At this early stage of the investigation there are still a lot of questions that need answers. Why was the GMC vehicle on the shoulder to begin with? Did that driver check for oncoming vehicles before pulling back onto the road? If not, why not? Did they signal their intent to re-enter the road? Did the victim see that pickup as he approached?

Those and many other details still need to be clarified while figuring out what happened. Depending on what's learned, there may be matters of accountability to work out as well. However, it's best not to jump to any conclusions while investigators work to connect the dots. Only time and careful analysis could say with more certainty how and why this tragic accident occurred.
