Commentary on Frank Stanch Truck Accident in Halifax County

With a tragic accident like this, it's important to ensure those affected at least know they're getting the full story. There could be unusual factors that authorities didn't consider in their investigations.

For example, it stands out to me that one person died while the other occupant apparently walked away with minor injuries. Why is that? Was it just all down to luck, or was there something like a seatbelt failure? That may not be common, but it has caused fatal crashes before, yet authorities almost never look into it. That's why more thorough independent investigations are often necessary in a crash like this. Even if something like fatigue leads to an accident, that doesn't necessarily mean the victim had to suffer fatal injuries. Getting these answers could show there are far more serious problems than these reports let on.
