Commentary on Fatal Semi-Truck Accident on 67th in Laveen
There isn't much information about what happened here, but folks tend to brush these tragic events aside simply because the victim hit the back of a truck. Quite frankly, that's because most crashes like this involve someone who was on their phone or fatigued. But that doesn't make it okay to overlook other possible contributing factors.
One possible factor, for example, is the parked truck and whether or not it was legally stopped. There are rules to follow when parking a commercial truck, and failing to follow those rules can be deadly. I'm not saying that happened here, but if authorities aren't looking into such factors, there may be other important details they're also ignoring. Ensuring independent investigators look into things can help ensure nothing important slips through the cracks.
