Commentary on Andromeda Esther Menard 18-wheeler Accident in Baytown
It's not really clear why the victim's vehicle stopped, as it could be anything from traffic to debris in the road to a mechanical issue. Whatever the case may be, finding out why the truck driver was unable to avoid the collision is crucial. Things aren't always as straight-forward as folks may think.
For example, I had a recent situation where a truck driver crashed while texting and driving, but it turned out he was texting his supervisor. This idiot supervisor would essentially threaten drivers with their jobs if they didn't respond to him quickly enough. He didn't care about their safety or the safety of others. He just wanted things done his way. This unreasonable attitude inevitably caused a serious accident, and it warranted consequences beyond that of just some irresponsible driver making a mistake on their own.
Maybe nothing so unusual happened here, but ensuring folks have all the facts is crucial for getting them the help they need. Whether this was just another situation involving someone going too fast or looking at their phone or if it was some one-in-a-million crash involving a manufacturing defect, the path to recovery begins with gathering clear evidence. Were those steps ever taken here?
