Daniel Lee Leinen Killed in Semi-Truck Accident in Wolf Creek Township, PA

There isn't much information about what exactly happened here. Folks may be quick to assume the truck driver is at fault, but a lot of that depends on where the victim was and how visible they were. If, for example, someone is in the middle of a dark roadway, a truck driver might not be able to avoid them no matter how safe and attentive they are. However, if the victim is fully on the shoulder and well-lit or using visible hazard lights, a truck somehow going onto the shoulder and hitting them would be a big problem. So what exactly happened here, and are authorities taking the steps to get clear answers?
