Maybe this is as straight-forward as someone not paying attention cutting off a couple of semis. Or, maybe this could be as complex as a situation I looked into a while back where TxDOT removed and forgot to replace a stop sign. Or, this could even be a challenging, gray-area crash where both drivers may have made mistakes, such as another crash I looked into involving a woman running a red light before being hit by an 18-wheeler going 20 MPH over the speed limit. For all we know, this was all just the result of a manufacturing defect.

I know people will assume that sort of thing would make it into police reports, but the reality is independent investigations often bring to light details that authorities initially overlooked. That's why ensuring there are thorough investigations after a serious commercial truck wreck is such a vital step for victims and families. I don't see why this wreck would be an exception to that.
