Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on I-15 in San Diego

Someone hitting the back of a truck is usually a sign they did something wrong, especially when the truck is on the shoulder. If it's true that happened here, perhaps the driver did make a mistake. But simply assuming this would be absolutely irresponsible. Despite the common misconception, drivers are not always responsible for hitting the back of a truck.

For example, one factor folks rarely consider is the responsibility commercial drivers have when stopping on the highway. Was the truck fully on the shoulder? Did it have a good reason to stop? Were they clearly visible and properly marked? Asking these questions can show that the proper precautions would have prevented the crash. Again, that may not be what happened here, but a man losing his life at least warrants considering all possible explanations.
