Commentary on Truck Accident on Highway 36 in Brenham

Police bringing up all kinds of possible explanations makes me skeptical they really gave this crash the attention it deserves. Those factors are possible--common, even--but a proper investigation should also consider other possibilities, even if they're unlikely.

For example, did authorities look into potential mechanical defects? Commercial trucks are incredibly complex. Without the right tools and experience, authorities might not notice a defect even if it was staring them in the face. Understanding these possibilities helps folks understand why thorough independent accident reconstructionists are so important. Could their efforts show that something unusual happened here?
