Commentary on Cameron Jean Cook 18-wheeler Accident in Weatherford

Something that stands out in the reports is authorities saying they have video evidence confirming the victim was going at excessive speeds. Now, I have no particular evidence to deny this, but it's always important to verify what exactly police looked into. After all, it's not entirely clear how much time passed between the truck turning and the victim hitting the trailer.

For all we know, markings and ECM data could show that even a driver going the speed limit wouldn't have been able to avoid the truck. Maybe the truck pulled out when it should have been clear there wasn't enough time to do so safely. This could even be a situation like one I looked into just a couple of months ago where it turned out a truck pulling onto a highway didn't have its lights on. Or what about a situation I handled a while back where a truck's reflective tape was completely covered in mud and practically useless?

Like I said, these are all just possibilities, but they are a few of the many possibilities I learned are worth considering after any serious truck wreck. Folks would be shocked to see how many times people called me with reports like this one where independent investigations showed the police overlooked something important or outright got the facts wrong. Maybe investigations would simply confirm that the truck driver did nothing wrong and was just minding their business, but they may also show there's more to this story than these seemingly straight-forward reports let on.
