Commentary on Cement Truck Accident on Beltway 8 in Houston

Right now reports can't really say what happened here. It's one thing to know that a truck crashed, but it's another to say why. How'd the driver lose control? Were they distracted? Did they fall asleep? Did they have some kind of medical episode? Was the truck in good condition? What were weather and traffic like in the area? Was there debris or water in the road?

I don't ask questions like those to complicate things or point fingers. It's just important to recognize all the possible variables and investigate them carefully--mostly to be sure all the crash's details are known, but also because every available fact is needed to get the victim the help they deserve.

It usually takes more than police or news reports to do that, which is why I often suggest independent investigators with the time, tools, and training to look much closer than law enforcement typically does. With the evidence they find, victims and families whose lives are affected by these accidents are able to get back on their feet.
