Commentary on Ahmadi Pascual Accident in Harris County

Many folks believe the rear driver is automatically at fault in a situation like this, but that's not actually true. The context of a crash can make all the difference, which is why it's always important to investigate carefully and learn all the facts. Details like both vehicles' speeds, if they were both in good repair, whether the truck driver used a turn signal before switching lanes, if the road was wet or hazardous, and the weather at the time, among many others, might wholly change how the crash is understood.

Reports don't say the truck driver did anything wrong and I'm not suggesting that just by asking for all potential factors to get attention. People just read about someone rear-ending a truck and think "case closed," but without a full and thorough investigation no one can be sure exactly what happened. At the very least the victim deserves the benefit of the doubt and and his loved ones deserve to know every effort was made to find the truth. Anything beyond that would depend on what is learned.
