Commentary on Truck Trailer Accident on Highway 101 in Leggett
Situations like this aren't always as simple as just someone being on their phone or hitting something in the road, though those are obviously possibilities. The challenge is making sure investigators have the experience and tools to consider even unlikely possible factors, such as mechanical defects, for example. Unfortunately, the authorities don't always have those tools, which is why independent investigations are often necessary for getting people the help and the answers they need. Are those steps being taken here?
