Commentary on Box Truck Accident on TX-6 in Waller
Right now reports can't really say what happened here--or more accurately why it happened. It's one thing to know that a truck left the road and crashed, but it's another to understand the reason for that. How'd the driver lose control? Were they distracted? Did they fall asleep? Did they have some kind of medical episode? Was the truck in good condition? What were weather and traffic like in the area? Was there debris or water in the road?
Questions like those aren't about complicating things or pointing fingers. It's just important to recognize all the possible variables and investigate them carefully--mostly to be sure all the crash's details are known, but also because every available fact is usually needed to get the victim the help they deserve.
It often takes more than police or news reports to do that, which is why I typically suggest independent investigators with the time, tools, and training to look much closer than law enforcement generally does. With the evidence they find, victims and families whose lives are affected by these accidents are better able to get back on their feet.
