Commentary on Raymond Riles 18-wheeler Accident in Van Vleck

With a situation like this, my concern is people will be quick to jump to conclusions. Quite frankly, it's rare that someone gets hit by a train without doing something wrong, and the lack of clear information only makes it easier for people to speculate. However, there are factors that warrant investigation in these situations.

Is this a particularly dangerous crossing? Did some unforeseeable mechanical issue cause the truck to go on the tracks? Are there malfunctioning guards or signals at the crossing? Is there overgrowth that blocks a driver's view of oncoming trains? Was the truck stuck on the tracks long enough for someone to contact and warn the conductor? Even if a lot of this is relatively unlikely, a man lost his life here. Doesn't that warrant effort to ensure his loved ones at least know the whole story?
