Commentary on George Monroe Peckham Jr. Rollover Accident on FM 812 in Austin

Considering this incident involved an 18-wheeler, the vagueness of the initial reports is rather surprising. Now that there are more details, though, there still doesn't seem to be much in the way of answers. Some folks will simply blame the victim for rear-ending the truck, but the law is not so black and white.

People aren't automatically at fault for rear-ending someone, despite the common misconception. For that reason, there still needs to be consideration into the possible factors leading up to this tragic event. Were there road defects? Did the trailer have working taillights, did the victim's vehicle have any defects, was fatigue or a medical condition a factor, etc. Without considering even unlikely possible factors, there's no way to be certain the victim's loved ones are getting the answers they deserve.
