Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on Pollex Avenue in Corpus Christi

I just want to be clear up front that I don't have any more information about this crash than what's in the reports. But my experience taught me to take initial reports like this with a grain of salt. They're not always that accurate, and failing to ensure there are more thorough investigations can easily leave victims and families out in the wind.

Not long ago, for example, I handled a situation where police said someone ran across the center line, hit a semi-truck, and died as a result. The family asked us to look into things just to be sure they were getting the full story. As it turned out, police completely got the facts wrong.

what really happened was the 18-wheeler initially drifted left of center, and the victim swerved to their left to avoid the truck. The truck driver then swerved back to the right after realizing what was happening, causing the vehicles to crash in the 18-wheeler's original lane. The officer handling the crash was rather inexperienced and ill-equipped, and they simply misinterpreted the facts they saw at the scene. Since the victim wasn't around to tell their side of the story, it took more thorough independent investigations to ultimately set the record straight.

I'm not saying anything so extreme happened here, but there's really no telling what important details may have slipped through the cracks. Taking any possible step to ensure folks are getting the full story is the least one could do to get folks the help they deserve.
