It seems like a lot has to go wrong for someone to drift off-road just trying to make room for another vehicle. It's possible there are inherent hazards with this particular stretch of road that can be addressed, but things like this can also involve drivers who just aren't very aware of their surroundings. That's one of the reasons it's important to investigate a driver's history and training records. There could be a situation like one I handled not long ago where it turned out a reckless truck driver was actually just someone whose employer neglected to put them through crucial training, ultimately putting his life and the lives of others in serious jeopardy. Maybe that isn't what happened here, but were investigations thorough enough to make sure the victim got all the facts they needed?
