Commentary on Truck Accident on NJ Turnpike in Carneys Point
There are still a lot of unanswered questions here that likely need attention. How did the truck driver lose control? Were they distracted? Did they fall asleep briefly? Was something wrong with the truck that sent it off-course? A mechanical failure, maybe, or a tire blowout? What were weather and road conditions like at the time?
That's just a handful of the many concerns that should still be addressed to the learn the whole story. Trucks don't just crash into tollbooths without explanation or cause, so investigators should determine both of those as soon as possible. Anything beyond simply learning the truth would probably depend on what that truth turns out to be.
