Commentary on Toni Dianne White 18-wheeler Accident in Collin County

If these reports are accurate, there aren't really man ways a truck could be involved in a crash like this without the driver doing something wrong. However, things are rarely ever simple, and getting people the help they need is just as important as making sure people face the appropriate consequences for their actions. A police report alone is rarely enough to cover all those bases.

I'll give you an example from a recent case. Something that few people consider is the role that a truck driver's employer can play in serious crashes. Case in point, a family came to me a while back with a crash in which it was clear that a semi-truck driver was on his phone, causing a wreck. That may have seemed open-and-shut, but our continued investigations revealed there was more to the story.

Apparently, that driver was responding to a text from his supervisor because that supervisor would constantly require drivers to respond to all of the endless texts and calls he made throughout the day. If they didn't meet these ludicrous expectations, they risked losing their jobs. That boss essentially cared more about micromanaging drivers perfectly capable of doing their jobs than the safety of those drivers and the general public.

With a situation like that, just holding a driver accountable is like slapping a company on the wrist. Even if evidence doesn't excuse a driver's behavior, it can show that there are more serious problems that could lead to more people being hurt in the future. I certainly can't say if anything like that happened here, but are the necessary steps being taken to find out for sure?
