Commentary on Gwendolynn Diane Phillips Truck Accident in San Patricio County

These reports may seem a bit more simple than crashes like this typically are. Perhaps there's more to this than what it seems, but authorities really only say that the victim here rear-ended the truck, and the driver may have been speeding. I can't say if that's true or not. But one key detail they left out is the exact timing of all of this.

This happened after a commercial truck turned onto northbound lanes. If the truck completed that turn, was getting up to speed, and was clearly lit, then it's likely that a reasonably prudent driver should have been able to avoid that. But what if the truck just turned into the path of the victim? What if the truck's taillights were out? What if the truck was going at dangerously low speeds? Even a driver following the speed limit might not be able to avoid a collision then.

Is that something police looked into, or did they just find an easy explanation and stop there? For a gamily grieving the loss of a loved one, it shouldn't be too much to ask that they know they're getting the full story.
