Commentary on Charles David Duncan Truck Accident in Floyd County

Reports like this often go overlooked because they may seem pretty open-and-shut. Not only are rear-end collisions usually the result of something like inattentive driving, but folks are also quick to blame motorcyclists for any crash. I certainly can't say what did or didn't happen here, but I'd caution folks against jumping to conclusions. There's simply no telling what investigations may have overlooked here.

I had a situation not long ago, for example, where police said witnesses saw a motorcycle recklessly weaving through traffic before hitting a semi-truck. When we actually looked into the evidence, though, that didn't really add up. We went to speak with the supposed witness, and they were shocked to see their statements so badly misinterpreted. Al they told the investigating officer was that the motorcycle passed them on the left before hitting the truck that cut it off.

I'm not at all saying that happened here, but if it turned out all of this was just biased reporting without supporting evidence, it wouldn't be the first time. Maybe more thorough independent investigations show that these reports are accurate. Maybe they show there's more to the story. Either way, the priority should be ensuring the victim's loved ones are getting the full story.
