Commentary on Peter Fahim Accident on I-30 in Malvern

Reports offer a rough sketch of what happened in this tragic crash, but they don't offer much insight into why things went that way. Some may blame driver mistakes like falling asleep or looking at a cell phone, but as common as issues like that are they can't be taken for granted. What if the driver had a medical emergency? Could his truck have malfunctioned or maybe blown a tire? Is it possible he swerved to avoid another vehicle? Exactly where was the Chrysler--was it all the way off the road or partially in the lane? What were weather, road, and traffic conditions like?

I don't ask questions like that to complicate things or suggest I know more than the news says. In keeping an open mind and wondering about other possibilities I'm just addressing the need to consider all the possible variables and investigate them carefully.

Unfortunately it often takes more effort than police put in to learn the whole truth. That's why I often suggest the help of independent investigators with the time, tools, and training to look much closer than law enforcement typically does. With the evidence they find, victims and families whose lives are affected by these accidents stand a better chance of getting back on track the best they can.
