Commentary on Box Truck Accident on I-45 in the Woodlands

Folks tend to see a rear-end collision and simply assume the rear driver did something wrong. That's often true, considering how regularly things like speeding, following too closely, and distracted driving are found to cause a crash like this. However, it's irresponsible to jump to any conclusions without conducting more thorough investigations.

Other contributing elements could have been overlooked at first glance. For example, what if the box truck driver braked suddenly after realizing they were approaching their exit too fast? Would that abrupt change in speed be ignored even though it may have caused the victim to rear-end the box truck? Of course not. The law is nuanced enough to consider all the factors that led to a crash, which is why thorough investigations are so important in these situations. Will law enforcement put in the necessary work to be sure the whole story is known, or should independent investigators take another look?
