Commentary on Rita Clark Lyon 18-wheeler Accident in Kerr County
Folks tend to assume crashes like this are all open-and-shut, but there can be complex issues to consider. For example, I handled a situation not long ago where a vehicle hit a commercial truck on the highway. Through our investigations, we found that the truck had no visibility markers despite being there for quite a while, the truck broke down because the owner continually neglected maintenance, and the mechanical issue didn't even require the truck to immediately stop the way it did, creating a deadly obstruction.
I'm not at all saying that happened here, but that was all information we didn't get from the crash reports. It took more thorough independent investigations to catch those details and bring them to light, and it's possible there are details here that have yet to be considered. As such, it's best people don't jump to blame anyone without knowing the facts.
