Commentary on Raymundo Cantu Accident on FM 666 in Nueces County

After a crash like this I'm often concerned that police investigators won't really be as thorough as they should. Reports say the driver admitted to possibly falling asleep briefly, and I have no reason to doubt him or them, but the thing that troubles me is whether everything else that happened really had to go that way. The cause of a crash isn't always the same as the cause of a victim's injuries so it's important to consider the whole picture.

For instance, modern truck manufacturers unfortunately tend to build vehicles to be cost-effective and don't always invest the resources to ensure driver safety. Corners get cut and designs never change even if simple safety improvements could be made to help prevent significant injury in the unfortunate event of a crash. When those improvements aren't implemented, a crash may end up much worse than it realistically had to be. Click the image below to learn more.
