Commentary on Truck Accident on Whitestone in Cedar Park
When a truck crashes into the back of slowing traffic, it's almost always because the driver was following too closely, looking at their phone, or going too fast. If investigations show that's what happened here, it would be too unusual. But it's important to always be thorough because things are rarely as simple as folks may think.
A recent case is a clear example of this. A while back, a reckless truck driver caused a serious crash, and a family asked us to look into things. Something authorities overlooked which we always look into was the driver's history. In that case, the driver's history was practically non-existent. He had almost no experience, and records showed that his employer rushed him through crucial training, essentially tossing him the keys with little more knowledge than where the pedals were.
Any responsible company would know how dangerous it is to put an improperly trained truck driver behind the wheel of a multi-ton vehicle. That company either didn't give a damn or was so inept they didn't realize the risks. I'm not at all saying that happened here, but crash reports like these don't always tell the whole story. Making sure professionals look into things can make a huge difference when it comes to ensuring people are held appropriately accountable for their actions.
