Commentary on Santiago Sal Siguinajay, Christian Jose Perdomo Vasquez 18-wheeler Accident in Hays County

It's not clear what happened here, but I find that people are quick to simply blame the driver of whichever vehicle lost control. First of all, with all of the serious injuries here, it's important to understand that these early reports may only tell a small portion of the full story. If victims are sent to hospitals or unresponsive, crash reports can be little more than an officer's best guess at the facts. If they don't follow up on the complex factors surrounding a deadly truck wreck, they can easily let something slip through the cracks.

Were there mechanical issues? Did a tire blowout? Was alcohol involved? Did a local bar over-serve someone? Is there something wrong with the roadway? Was there a medical emergency? Did another reckless driver that left the scene cause the crash? Does this stretch of road see an abnormally high amount of accidents? Even if some of these factors seem unlikely, the fact of the matter is someone lost their life. Their loved ones deserve to know they're getting all the facts. Those facts can also work toward getting the victims continuing to recover some much needed help. Are authorities taking those steps, or will there need to be more thorough independent investigations?
