Commentary on Truck Accident on Webb Chapel in Dallas

A truck reportedly failing to yield is pretty darn reckless, and there aren't many reasons for doing so without making a mistake. Maybe this is that one-in-a-million crash that a truck driver couldn't avoid, but investigations are likely to show they just weren't paying attention or were being impatient. In any event, finding out not just what happened but why can be crucial.

Take for example a case that came to us a while back in which a truck driver was trying to meet a ludicrous deadline, leading him to driver for 20 hours straight and fall asleep at the wheel. His employer would essentially coerce drivers to behave this way, threatening their jobs if they didn't cut corners to meet the unreasonable expectations they laid out for them. They could have seen a deadly wreck coming, yet they continued their selfish behavior regardless.

What some would have written off as some reckless driver turned out to be a whole company that needed a wake-up call. Victims and families that can get that kind of information put themselves in the best opportunity to get the help they need. Simple or not, similar efforts could prove equally fruitful here.
