Commentary on Brian Bayne Accident in Scott County

Police don't yet seem to know exactly what happened in this accident. I'm not coming down on them for not having all the answers, but I hope they'll soon be able to say with more certainty exactly how and why this tragic incident occurred.

It's one thing to read that the truck left the road and hit the overpass, but it would be another thing entirely to understand the circumstances of that. If the driver lost control, why? Was he awake, alert, and watching the road? Could he have lost control due to a medical emergency? Was the truck in good working order and properly maintained--engine, alignment, tires, and other crucial components? Images of the scene show overcast weather and wet road surfaces; did those contribute to the accident? Is that stretch of road poorly designed or maintained?

I don't ask those questions to muddy the waters or assume anything. It's important to carefully investigate all the possible variables rather than jumping to conclusions. If police investigations fall short of filling in all the remaining blanks here, it may be best for independent investigators to have another look. At the very least I think most would agree the victim's loved ones deserve all the answers and help they can get.
