Commentary on Khary Tier Williams Truck Accident in Woodlawn
It's obviously important to find the truck driver involved here, and I imagine police must have leads. After all, this truck was coming out of a work zone. Either the driver works for the company responsible for the zone, or they work for a company that was delivering materials. Surely there is some kind of record of companies on site and drivers for that company. Even in the unlikely event the truck driver somehow failed to notice an accident even occurred, having them answer for what happened is the least that can be done for a grieving family.
A particularly concerning possibility, however, is that the truck driver knew what happened, that his employer knows what happened, and the did not immediately come forward to take responsibility. Whether or not the truck driver actually did anything wrong--though it certainly seems unlikely for this to happen without a driver coming out of a work zone doing something wrong--speaking to authorities is still necessary. Is that a detail that authorities are keeping in mind? Is this some series of unavoidable accidents? A reckless driver going against all of their training and experience? Or is this all the result of a company that encourages reckless and irresponsible behavior that will do everything in its power to avoid responsibility for a man losing his life?
Perhaps more thorough investigations from independent professionals could help make headway in these investigations.
