Commentary on Martin Crommie Truck Accident in Portland
These reports may seem relatively straight forward, but I'm always cautious with early reports concerning non-standard vehicles like this. Scooters, bicycles, mopeds, motorcycles--folks tend to assume these vehicles are always doing something wrong. Maybe that did happen here, but investigations sometimes find that initial reports were biased an inaccurate. Could the same prove true here? I'd say that at the very least, someone losing their life warrants steps to ensure their loved ones are getting the facts.
