Commentary on Dereese Lynette Reid-Hart Truck Accident in Montgomery County

While rear-end collisions like this no doubt seem open-and-shut, they can often be more complex than people realize. It's not just about what happened; victims and families also should know why the crash happened. But why exactly is that so important?

Here's an example of why that matters. I had this case a while back where a truck driver crashed while texting and driving. As open-and-shut as that seemed, we kept digging, and the full story became far more complex.

It turned out the driver had been texting his supervisor at the time. This supervisor demanded drivers immediately respond, no excuses. This naturally led to drivers taking risks behind the wheel all to appease their unreasonable boss. It was just a matter of time until someone got seriously hurt, and that's exactly what happened.

To be clear, I'm not saying that happened here. My point is that getting someone the help they need, while a top priority, is only one part of the equation. The hundreds of families I've helped through commercial vehicle wrecks also wanted one other thing: accountability. Taking steps to make sure the right people are facing the right consequences often requires more in-depth investigations than what authorities typically offer. Would the same prove true here, as well?
