Commentary on Cedar Park Man Injured in Truck Rollover Accident on Highway 36 in Callahan County

If the reports are accurate, there's not much one can do to avoid an animal causing a crash. It's not like you can confront the deer in court. But something to consider is that injuries are not always a direct result of a crash. Sometimes, there are other factors that made the crash worse than it ought to have been.

For example, the truck here overturned. Did the truck take the damage reasonably, or did the cab crush far too easily? It's a well known issue that many commercial trucks are built solely with the intent of hauling cargo and no thought for the safety of the drivers. Despite the technology being reasonably available to make rollovers safer, manufacturers continue to neglect making these changes. As a result, people can get far more seriously injured than they should have been. Could it be something like that happened here?

Likely or not, these are important factors to consider. Whether or not it happened here remains unclear, but clicking the image below will help folks learn more about this important trucking industry issue.
