Commentary on Marian Kimberlie Jones 18-wheeler Accident in San Patricio County

Generally speaking, weather isn't often an acceptable excuse for a crash. Authorities certainly seem to think speed was a factor here. But 30 years of experience taught me that these reports rarely tell the whole story. There could be all kinds of extenuating circumstances that need to be considered.

Did the fog suddenly become thicker, making it more difficult to see? Are the signs at this intersection not visible enough? Should there be more lighting in the area? Did the victim's vehicle have any issues with its safety features, tires, or brakes? Even if something seems unlikely, making sure nothing important slipped through the cracks should be a priority following any serious truck wreck. It remains to be seen if authorities ensured that all possible factors were considered here.
