There still isn't much information about this crash. What exactly did authorities look into? Distracted driving? Fatigue? Speeding? Intoxication? As common as those factors are, the problem I often encounter is that's all authorities care to look into. Likely or not, there are other possible factors that need to be considered.
What about defects? These can be incredibly complex to investigate, especially with commercial trucks. Without the right experience and equipment, authorities can easily miss something important. If some manufacturing issue leads to a crash, shouldn't steps be taken to make sure that issue isn't going to harm anyone else?
Like I said, this is just an example of something that usually requires independent investigations. Whether or not that ever happened here remains to be seen. Those looking to learn more can click on the image below.
