Commentary on Steven Shay Accident in Rowlesburg

Obviously there's still a lot of missing information here that will have to be addressed before anyone starts suggesting who's to blame. How fast was the motorcycle traveling? Did this crash happen at an intersection? If so, who had the right of way? How is the intersection controlled? Are there stop signs there? Lights? Were the truck and trailer someone's personal equipment or did they belong to a company? Were both drivers awake, alert, and paying attention?

That's just a handful of the many questions that still need answers. The point isn't to complicate things, just to acknowledge that most crashes are complicated already and their variables often get overlooked. To be sure the truth is found and the victim's loved ones get the facts and help they deserve, I hope that experienced professionals seek out more information.
