Commentary on Tractor-Trailer Accident on I-19 in Sahuarita
With truck wrecks like this, folks tend to just assume the driver must have been doing something wrong, like speeding or looking at their phone. However, commercial vehicle accidents can be pretty complex, so it's important that investigators actually take the time to look into things more thoroughly. There could be something unusual like a mechanical issue involved or perhaps a situation like one I handled recently where a company was overworking its drivers and forcing them to break hours of service limits. That isn't the sort of stuff authorities tend to look into, so steps may need to be taken independent of their efforts to ensure all the facts come to light.
