Commentary on Cumby Man Truck Accident on FM 1570 in Hunt County

When folks see a crash like this, they tend to just assume that the truck driver screwed up. That's very possible, and it's actually pretty darn likely. Investigations typically find the driver was going too fast or looking at their phone. But it would be irresponsible to make that assumption without any clear evidence.

For all we know, there was a tire failure. Maybe cargo shifted. Maybe the company makes the driver work dangerously long hours or operate a truck they refuse to maintain properly. Maybe there's something wrong with the road itself. It's not about what is or isn't likely. It's about getting the facts and letting them speak for themselves. Doing so may require more thorough independent investigations.
