Commentary on Akera Reese, Tiffany Coleman, Robert Hunter Log Truck Accident in Copiah County

It's not entirely clear what happened in this awful event, and it's important folks don't get caught up in leading wording. The news says that the log truck "collided with" the Lexus. Sometimes, people read that as the truck being at fault. Maybe that happened here, but that could mean that a car cut off the truck just as much as it could mean the truck crashed into congested traffic. Actual evidence is what needs to tell the story going forward. That said, I can't help being concerned whether or not authorities are taking the necessary steps to get that evidence.

When it comes to commercial truck wrecks, authorities often don't have the experience or tools needed to look into things. This isn't to blame any officers in particular. Rather, the departments are the ones that tend to put accident reconstruction low on their list of priorities. As a result, important information slips through the cracks. For a family in need of help--in need of answers--this is a big problem. That's why ensuring there are thorough independent accident reconstructions as soon as possible can be such a crucial step going forward.
