Commentary on Dump Truck Accident on Highway 28 in Lone Pine

I certainly can't speculate about what led to this crash, but there's something folks should understand about commercial truck rollover accidents. Put simply, they often end up being far more serious than they need to be. Why is that?

There's an all too persistent issue with the trucking industry where manufacturers build trucks such that they might as well be a tissue box on top of a giant steel slab, causing the cabs to crush far too easily. As such, rollovers which could be survivable or minor end up causing serious or fatal injuries. Is that something that happened here, and do authorities have the experience and tools to look into such factors?
