Commentary on Unicycle, Garbage Truck Accident on Octavia in San Francisco

Something I talk about a lot on this blog is the importance of ensuring experienced investigators look into a deadly crash. That's especially true when non-standard vehicles (motorcycles, bicycles, mopeds, etc.) are involved. The fact of the matter is people are more likely to blame those operators when there is no evidence to set the record straight. Well, it doesn't get much more non-standard than a motorized unicycle. This probably isn't the sort of accident authorities are used to looking into, so perhaps more thorough efforts from independent investigators will prove necessary for getting the victim's loved ones the answers they deserve.
