Commentary on Bryan Daniel Warrick Truck Accident in Albemarle County
While it's not all that unusual to see so few details surrounding a tragic fatal truck wreck, it's important to understand why there are so few details. Are authorities simply withholding information until they know more, or is this a sign the crash isn't getting the attention it deserves?
I can't begin to count how many times families came to me about a serious crash weeks or months down the line completely empty handed. Authorities don't always have the tools and experience to look into complex commercial vehicle wrecks, and that's when important details slip through the cracks. There can even be situations like one I handled a while back where an inexperienced officer allowed a trucking company to take vital evidence from the scene because they just assumed the company would share the information they got.
One of the most consistent notions I discuss on this blog is the importance of independent accident reconstructionists. People lost their lives here--including a child. Shouldn't there be every possible step to ensure their loved ones at least know they're getting the full story? Maybe those steps are being taken already, but with such scarce details in the public right now, I can't help wondering if those involved here are really getting the answers they deserve.
