Commentary on Midland Man Truck Accident on Berdett in Fort Bend County
Regardless of what caused this crash, truck rollovers often have an important component I don't see talked about enough. This has to do with the safety of the vehicles and the danger they may pose to drivers.
Put simply, a lot of commercial trucks that should be able to withstand rollovers fail to do so due to lazy manufacturers. This can lead to drivers being seriously or fatally injured when they otherwise would have been fine. Could it be something like that happened here? It would likely take independent investigations to say for sure.
