Commentary on Fatal Semi-Truck Accident on I-35 in Austin

There isn't much information about what happened here, but that's not exactly unusual with a crash this serious. It can take extremely thorough investigators to go through a commercial truck wreck and get clear answers for the victims and families. Whether or not authorities can do so is unfortunately a bit of a gamble.

Usually, officers aren't given enough time or equipment to handle complex accidents, so important details can slip through the cracks. It's one of the reasons so many people seek professionals like myself, and it's why I rely on independent accident reconstructionists who understand even the more challenging possible factors that can contribute to a crash like this. Are those steps being taken here at all?
