Commentary on Christopher Oneal Lee 18-wheeler Accident in Gregg County
If the claims of the 18-wheeler's reckless maneuver are true, then it's important to keep these details as much in the public eye as possible. Even weeks or months following an incident, it's still possible to find new information that can lead to a runaway driver's identity.
for example, I handled a situation where an 18-wheeler caused a serious head-on collision, then fled the scene. After months of no progress, the family came to us, and we circulated reports in the local media. A couple saw those reports and contacted us. Apparently, they witnessed the wreck and followed the truck driver, writing down identifying details on the truck. They went to the police with this information, but the department somehow lost track of that information and never followed up.
Had there not been continued efforts to find that driver, there's no telling if that family ever would have seen the resolution they deserved. Whatever led to this crash, it's possible that continued diligence will see a resolution for those involved. If nothing else, it's always worth consider any possible steps to get people the help they need.
