Commentary on 18-wheeler Accident on US 287 in Hardeman County

Folks tend to overlook crashes like this since reports suggest that the victims' vehicle is the one responsible for the crash. In reality, these crash reports don't always tell the full story. It's important to ensure the investigations were thorough and used clear evidence to tell they story.

18-wheeler Accident US 287 Hardeman County, TX

For example, I had a situation not long ago where police said a car crossed the center line and hit an 18-wheeler head-on. After more thorough investigations, though, it became clear that police completely got the facts wrong. It was actually the 18-wheeler that caused the fatal wreck.

I'm not saying that happened here, of course, but if authorities can make a mistake that big, imagine what else they can overlook. Mechanical defects, road hazards, tire issues, other drivers that left the scene--even if something seems unlikely, getting people the help they need should always be a priority. Even this long after an accident, steps can be taken to ensure the authorities didn't miss something important.
