Commentary on Justin Ecker, Carol Ecker, Jonathan Ecker, Jennifer Mcginness, Ralph Enderle Truck Accident in Willmar

Before folks start jumping to conclusions about what happened here, it's important to emphasize just how complex these situations can be. It's not always about the most likely explanation. Without proper investigations, there's no telling what investigations might overlook.

A while back, for example, there was a crash here in Texas where police said someone ran a stop sign, and a truck hit and killed them. Weeks later, however, independent investigators revealed to us that police missed something crucial.

It turned out that a construction crew had removed the stop signs at the intersection while working at the scene. When they left, though, they forgot to replace the signs. So how exactly did the victim run a stop sign that wasn't even there?

I'm not trying to suggest something so unusual happened here. It's simply that in all the chaos of a fatal truck wreck, folks can be too quick to make assumptions. At the end of the day, there are families out there going through indescribable hardship. If nothing else, they deserve to know they're getting the full story. Are the proper steps being taken here to get them the answers they deserve?
