Commentary on Dump Truck Accident on Highway 29 in Escambia County

While there isn't much information about what happened here, folks may be quick to jump to conclusions. Someone rear-ending a truck must have done something wrong, right? While often true, it'd be ridiculous to assume that was automatically true.

What if the truck made a sudden lane change without signaling? What if they whipped out of a construction zone? What if the victim was forced over by some other reckless driver? What if this is some highly unusual situation involving something like brake failure?

Obviously things like distracted driving and following too closely are far more likely--I would never suggest ignoring those possibilities. But taking the time to ensure all the facts are clear is crucial regardless of how likely some factors are. Are steps being taken here to give this incident the attention it deserves?
