Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on Clearwater Drive in Highland Village

While it's not clear what happened here, a truck backing unsafely into the roadway is unfortunately not too uncommon. There are many drivers out there that give professional truckers a bad name by engaging in reckless behavior and expecting everyone around them to adjust for them without any thought of how their actions can impact others. What professional drivers also likely know, however, is that sometimes the companies those reckless drivers work for can be just as culpable.

Not long ago, for example, our investigations into a reckless truck driver brought to light the fact he barely had any training. His employer would just hire anyone off the street, rush them through vital safety training, and get them on the road as soon as possible. They didn't at all care about ensuring drivers could do their jobs safely as responsible companies would. They just wanted to get trucks on the road no matter the risk. It was just a matter of time before someone got hurt.

Maybe nothing like that happened here, but ensuring people are held accountable for their actions should be just as much a priority as getting victims and families the help they need. As it so happens, taking steps to get clear evidence surrounding the crash can work toward accomplishing both goals.
