Commentary on Truck, Van Accident on Highway 19 in Laurens County

In some reports, the preliminary details seem to suggest whoever was driving this van made a sudden u-turn into the path of the truck after missing a turn. I'm certainly not here to say I know any differently. However, these early reports aren't always as thorough as one may think. It's important to ensure that the facts are clear.

There may be witnesses, video evidence, crash scene evidence, mechanical defects, medical conditions, cell phone data, or any number of other details that can shed light on what happened here. Maybe the van did make a sudden movement the truck driver couldn't avoid. Maybe the truck failed to slow down for an entirely avoidable collision. Maybe something completely uncontrollable led to the crash.

The key is to avoid jumping to conclusions and to take steps to ensure those involved here know they're getting the full story. Doing so may require efforts far beyond a simple police investigation alone.
