Right now, there doesn't seem to be any real explanation for what happened here. Folks may be quick to assume that the driver was on their phone or speeding, and those factors certainly warrant consideration.

Quite frankly, authorities don't always have the right tools or training to look into something like tire defects, mechanical issues, road hazards, cargo shift, or possibilities related to a work environment, such as being overworked or improperly trained. In other words, getting answers about a crash like this is usually a job for more thorough independent accident reconstructionists who have experience with commercial vehicles. Were those steps ever taken here? Getting a family the answers they deserve may depend on it.
