Commentary on Shane Young Truck Accident in Covington
As straight-forward as this all may seem in reports, it's important folks understand how crucial thorough independent investigations are. They could simply ensure that nothing slipped through the cracks here, but that could also show there errors or missing details in the reports.
I had this crash a while back, for example, where someone reportedly went across the center line and hit a truck head-on. When we actually looked into things, however, the evidence told a different story. It turned out the truck initially crossed over, and the victim swerved left to avoid it. The truck then veered back into its original lane where the vehicles collided.
To be clear, I'm not at all saying that happened here. My point is that details can easily slip through the cracks if authorities don't dedicate the time and resources needed for something as complex as a commercial truck wreck. Are steps being taken here to make sure the victim's loved ones are getting the answers they deserve?
