Commentary on Kenneth Laurence Rucker 18-wheeler Accident in New Braunfels

Folks tend to overlook any crash where it appears someone crashed into the back of another vehicle. That's especially true when that vehicle happens to be stationary. But things aren't always so simple. Sometimes, reports leave out crucial details about tire blowouts or road hazards. Sometimes the parked vehicle isn't exactly where reports say they were. There are even highly unusual circumstances where one thing causes a crash, but something else causes the injuries.

Just recently, a colleague and I discussed a crash where a woman hit the back of a semi, but her defective airbag is what actually led to her being seriously hurt. Could it be something like that happened here? Did authorities have the experience and equipment to find out for sure? That's one of the reasons it's best to take early reports like these with a grain of salt until it can be ensured that all the facts are clear. Until then, folks should avoid jumping to conclusions.
