Commentary on Fatal 18-wheeler Accident on I-95 in Delray Beach

Some folks may be quick to write this all off as just an unavoidable tragedy. Not much one can do about a vehicle broken down in the middle of a dark freeway, right? Well, that could be true. But it's worth looking into what exactly happened here. There may be more to this than reports let on.

Take for example a similar situation that came to me a while back. When we dug into that apparently unavoidable crash, we obtained video revealing two shocking details. One was that the victim's emergency lights were entirely visible ahead of time, but the truck driver failed to avoid the vehicle. Why? Well, the second shocking detail was the truck driver was watching TV shows on his tablet. What may have seemed unavoidable turned out to be the result of unbelievably negligent behavior.

Maybe nothing so extreme happened here, but a man lost his life. Shouldn't that warrant every step to ensure his loved ones know they're getting the full story?
