Commentary on James Wylie Dean Truck Accident in Carrollton
A truck running a red light is pretty darn serious, but it's important not to jump to conclusions or view a situation like this as simple. As clear as things may look, the factors leading up to the crash aren't always as straight-forward as folks may think.
For example, I handled a situation in which a truck driver texting and driving caused a serious wreck. As open-and-shut as that seemed, we kept digging, and it turned out the driver was responding to his supervisor. This moron of a supervisor would constantly harass drivers all day with texts and calls. If they took too long to respond, he'd get on their case and even threaten their jobs.
Naturally, this led to drivers, simply trying to provide for their families, to take risks to appease their unreasonable boss. It was just a matter of time before someone would get hurt, but that supervisor either didn't care or was too stupid to see the danger in his actions.
What may have seemed like a simple irresponsible driver turned out to be a whole work environment putting lives at risk. Mistakes that lead to a serious accident must be addressed appropriately, and that means ensuring the right people are held responsible. That should be as much a priority as getting folks the help they need. It remains to be seen if it was a priority for whoever looked into this crash.
