Commentary on Cynthia Delle Meador 18-wheeler Accident in Jacksonville

Looking at where this happened, this isn't the typical rural highway where people are going 80 MPH. A prudent 18-wheeler driver, based on the most up to date images of the road I could find, would be going about 55 MPH. It makes me wonder if this crash really had to be fatal, regardless of what caused it.

A t-bone collision on the side of the vehicle someone is sitting on is often incredibly devastating. On the opposite side, though, even with an 18-wheeler, modern vehicles can withstand quite an impact. It makes me wonder if police are looking into factors surrounding the severity of the collision. Did the victim's seatbelt and airbags work properly? Did their seat stay in place? How fast was the truck going? Was it overloaded, or within safe weight range? Did the 18-wheeler have time to hit the brakes? Answering these questions may just reveal that there is more to this tragedy than reports are letting on.
