There isn't a lot of information yet about how exactly this crash happened or what caused it. However, it's best not to start making guesses to fill in those blanks.

To learn more about the wreck police still need to look into many of its possible factors: Possible driver mistakes like distraction or speeding, mechanical failures or defects in the vehicles, road conditions and design, visibility, issues with signage or lights, inclement weather, other traffic in the area, and many other elements that could have influenced or even caused the crash. Considering all the variables is an important part of any investigation.

As investigators keep working to connect the dots, theorizing from the sidelines isn't helpful. I've seen too many folks rush to judgment after reading a few sentences in the news, only to completely change their minds after more information came to light. The same could happen here, though the police investigation may not clarify things as much as one would hope.

After a major accident--particularly one involving a commercial truck--an independent investigation is often best to ensure the whole truth is found. Whatever is learned, the victim's loved ones deserve to know every effort was made to bring them answers. Any other actions beyond simply learning the truth would depend on what that truth turns out to be.
