Commentary on Truck Accident on East 131st in Garfield Heights
When there are so few details about a crash available, it's usually a sign either that the news doesn't care or that the authorities don't care--sometimes both. Maybe this is a situation where the victims and families are getting more information than the public, and authorities have a good grasp on the facts. It's also possible, however, that this crash isn't getting the attention it deserves. Too often, folks come to me months after an accident without any information whatsoever. If authorities don't dedicate the time, tools, or experience necessary for a serious commercial truck wreck, important information can easily slip through the cracks. The question, then, is if steps are being taken to ensure those involved here are getting the answers they need.
