Commentary on John Moorman Accident in Albemarle County

It's always saddening to see an accident like this where someone just trying to do his job lost his life. I hope investigators are able to make sense of how and why the truck ran off the road, and as they connect more of the dots it's best that nobody jump to any conclusions.

Images taken at the scene show the dump truck overturned on its side by the tree. It's possible that was an unavoidable consequence of it going out of control, but many commercial trucks are far less stable overall than some people may think. That tendency to tip over has turned many survivable accidents into fatal ones, and it's a problem that should be addressed. Click the picture below to learn more.
