Commentary on Cactus Man Semi-Truck Accident in Moore County

I learned a long time ago that it's best to take early reports like these with a grain of salt. Is it possible alcohol was involved here? Sure, and that could lead to complex situations like finding a business that illegally over-served someone and can be liable for the crash under dram shop law. That said, it's also important to consider other possible factors here.

Was there a mechanical issue? Road hazards? Was the truck moving slowly or without its lights on? Was there another driver involved? Did the victim have a medical emergency or a tire blowout? Even if something seems unlikely, getting clear answers should always be a priority when it comes time to get people the help they need.
