Commentary on Maria Daisy Rangel 18-wheeler Accident in Seguin

When it comes to 18-wheelers rear-ending someone, it can be too easy for folks to jump to conclusions. It's obviously the truck driver's fault, right? Well, barring something unusual like a manufacturing defect or medical emergency, that's the most likely explanation. But just blaming someone and moving on isn't prudent. Getting people the help they need means knowing the whole story.

Take for example a crash that came to me a while back involving a truck driver texting and driving. Pretty open-and-shut, right? Well, our investigations revealed the driver responding to his supervisor. This supervisor constantly called and texted drivers throughout the day. If they didn't respond right away, they'd get in trouble, risking their jobs.

This idiotic practice naturally led to drivers breaking rules to appease their unreasonable boss. What some would have been content to call a reckless driver turned out to be a whole company that needed to be held accountable before they got more people hurt. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but that should help explain why I always approach commercial truck wrecks like the complex situations they often are.
