Commentary on William Lester Accident in Byromville

The news says the victim failed to yield at the intersection. I have no specific reason to doubt that, but at the same time it's unclear why that might have happened and it's best not to jump to any conclusions about that. Did the victim just make a momentary but costly mistake, or was something else involved? Did his pickup have a mechanical or brake failure? Did he have a medical emergency? Was signage at that intersection clear, present, and visible? Were any other vehicles in the area? How fast was the big rig traveling?

These questions and others like them aren't meant to overcomplicate things or point fingers. I'm only pointing out that when someone is hurt or killed in an accident the best thing to do is ensure all that crash's true details are known. Without a full investigation that accounts for all the variables, people may be unfairly blamed and the whole story may never be learned. That's unfair to the victim's loved ones, who deserve every answer they can get. Will appropriate care be taken to ensure they have the facts?
