Commentary on Craig Michael Randall Truck Accident in Harris County

With a serious crash like this, it's easy enough for people to jump to conclusions. Someone rear-ending a truck must have done something wrong, right? Well, that's often true. This could involve anything from fatigue to distracted driving to driving drunk on the way home from a bar (which could even mean said bar is liable for the injuries if they illegally over-served the driver). However, that's all depending on just how accurate these initial reports actually are. More thorough investigations can sometimes reveal issues that slipped through the cracks.

For example, I handled a situation not long ago where police put someone 100% at fault for speeding, weaving through traffic, and rear-ending a semi. The family was confused because they knew their loved one would never do something so reckless. As it turned out, they were right.

The investigating officer based their reports on a witness statement, but that witness was shocked when we showed him the reports. All he told the officer, apparently, was that the victim passed them on the left, then changed lanes to the right. It was actually the semi coming out of a parking lot that caused the crash. We were able to confirm this with an accident reconstruction, and only then did the authorities correct the record.

Now, I'm not at all saying that happened here. But folks shouldn't just take reports like these at face value. They rarely tell the whole story, and getting folks the help they deserve means ensuring nothing important slipped through the cracks. Were those steps taken here?
