Commentary on Roy McCarty Truck Accident in Anderson County

I certainly don't know anything more about this tragedy than what's been released to the public already. With that said, it's always important to ensure there are more thorough investigations so nothing slips through the cracks. Quite frankly, I've seen all kinds of crashes in my career where authorities missed something because they weren't thorough enough.

Sometimes it's because their department doesn't equip them properly. Sometimes the officer is inexperienced or jumps to conclusions. Other times it might just be a simple mistake. But when it comes to getting a man's family the answers they deserve, there are no simple mistakes. Having independent investigators look into the details might not reveal anything unusual here, but ensuring the family is getting the full story is worth the effort.
