Commentary on Mack Truck Accident Flour Bluff in Corpus Christi

As straight forward as an accident like this can seem, it's always important to ensure nothing important slipped through the cracks. Just recently, a colleague and I were discussing a crash that was a good example of why that approach is prudent.

In that case, a man allegedly ran a stop sign, and a truck hit and killed him. Open-and-shut, right? Well, weeks later, independent investigations found something highly unusual. Apparently TxDOT had been doing construction in the area, removing the stop signs in the process. When they left for the day, however, they forgot to replace the signs.

So the victim was blamed for running a stop sign that wasn't even there. Unusual or not, things like that can happen. We're not going to be able to say if something similar happened here without knowing all the facts. That's why it's usually best to simply focus on how to get folks the help they need rather than rushing to blame them.
