Commentary on Adrian Rominu 18-wheeler Accident in Lewisville

While a disabled vehicle can certainly be a dangerous obstruction on the highway, one has to wonder why the truck driver didn't see and avoid the vehicle. Answering that question isn't always as simple as it may seem.

For example, a family came to me a while back with a situation where a truck driver hit a disabled car, killing the driver. The trucking company said it was simply too dark to see the victim, so their driver couldn't possibly avoid the collision. What they weren't counting on was us going through the courts and getting orders to search the truck, which provided video evidence both from the dash cam and a camera inside the driver's cabin.

That video footage shocked us. Not only did it show the victim's car clearly visible with its lights on roughly three-quarters of a mile down the road, it also showed the truck driver too busy watching shows on his laptop to look up at the road. Only after bring all of that to light did the trucking company decide it'd be best to cooperate.

To be clear, I'm not saying anything like that happened here. But not only are there claims that the truck was going at unsafe speeds, but this also happened during daylight hours, And there's no particular mention that the driver would have had obstruction to visibility a reasonably prudent professional couldn't account for. Does that mean this truck driver should have been able to avoid this collision? If so, steps should be taken to get some answers for those involved here.
