Commentary on Dump Truck Accident on Burlington Pike in Delran
This long after a fatal wreck, it's a bit concerning to see so few details publicly available. Obviously, authorities can withhold information from the public, and the news can move on to stories it feels are more important. But this can also be a sign that a complex truck wreck isn't really getting the attention it deserves. Authorities do not always have the tools or experience to handle something like a commercial vehicle accident, which can lead to important details slipping through the cracks. Maybe this crash is in better hands, but there could still be a family out there in need of answers. It's worth taking the necessary steps to ensure they're getting those answers.
