Commentary on Anthony O'Brien Truck Accident in Nettie

The exact circumstances surrounding this tragic event aren't entirely clear right now, though folks may think something like a head-on collision is relatively straight-forward for authorities to investigate. In reality, they can be incredibly complex, and important details can slip through the cracks without the right professionals handling things.

A while back, for example, a family came to us about a crossover where police said their loved one went left of center and hit an 18-wheeler. Once we had independent investigators look into the details, though, evidence showed it was actually the 18-wheeler that crossed into oncoming lanes. Had there not been more thorough investigations, who knows if the truth ever would have come to light. I'm not saying that happened here, but if details that big can go overlooked, one can imagine what else may slip through the cracks without proper investigations. Are steps being taken here to ensure those affected by the crash get the answers they deserve?
