Commentary on Ryan Nemitz Accident near Juniata

While it's not clear what happened here, folks may see things as pretty open-and-shut. After all, there aren't many reasons this sort of thing happens without a truck driver being in the wrong. However, it's always important to be thorough and not jump to conclusions. Why didn't the truck or train stop before colliding? Did either have mechanical issues? If the crossing doesn't have controls, should it? Did both operators see one another? Was the truck driver trained and experienced?

Likely or not, there are possible factors that are much more complex than a truck driver simply being reckless one way or another. Especially if it can get someone the help they need, it's worth looking into all the potential issues surrounding this crash.
