Commentary on Steven Whited Tractor-Trailer Accident in Christian County

If it's true that a cargo shift led to this crash, that can create a rather complex scenario. People tend to assume that would just be the truck driver's fault for not checking their cargo before driving or perhaps a co-worker for loading it improperly. But sometimes, a completely separate company can be involved.

I had a situation not that long ago where one company improperly loaded a trailer, and it led to a serious crash. That company isn't suddenly in the clear just because another driver is the one that crashed. If someone makes a mistake, and that leads to people getting hurt, they can be on the hook for their portion of the blame. Could it be that's what happened here?
