Commentary on Truck Rollover Accident on FM 220 in Cherokee County
Folks tend to assume that a crash like this has to be the result of the driver screwing up. Quite frankly, that's the most likely explanation. But there are other factors that also warrant investigation even if they're not very likely. Mechanical defects, tire blowouts, cargo shifts, unsafe working conditions--these are all relatively uncommon but certainly possible. The challenge, however, is that authorities rarely have the experience and equipment too look into something so intricate. That's why there usually needs to be more thorough independent investigations, and the same could prove true here, as well.
