Commentary on Truck Accident on Highway 137 in Glasscock County
These details seem pretty straight-forward, and I don't have any specific evidence countering these reports. But it seems incredibly odd that on a straight, flat highway like this, someone would just turn directly into the path of an 18-wheeler all of a sudden. Is there more to this story?
Certainly drivers can be unbelievably reckless or perhaps inattentive, but could it be that the victim's vehicle actually lost control suddenly? Did authorities check to see if there was a tire blowout? Some sort of mechanical defect? A medical emergency? Something in the road? Likely or not, this crash report is far from painting a clear picture. It's likely worth taking steps to ensure authorities didn't overlook anything important, especially if that information can get people some much needed help.
