Commentary on Jeffrey Bielec Accident in Georgetown

Considering the reported circumstances of the crash I'd imagine police are focused mostly on why the victims' vehicle left the roadway in the first place. That's certainly important to learn, but at the same time I discourage fixating on that specific detail at the cost of others. This early in the investigation it's best to keep an open mind and pay attention to all the possible contributing factors--to the crash itself, but also to the victim's tragic and fatal injuries.

For instance, two often-overlooked but crucial details to learn in Georgetown are why the truck was parked on the shoulder and exactly what the driver did after stopping there. People don't always know that truck drivers have some pretty strict guidelines about both where they can stop and what they have to do after parking--particularly on the road or shoulder.
