Commentary on Billy Ray Ervin Jr. Semi-Truck Accident in Indianapolis

While it's obviously important to determine a cause for a fatal crash like this, there could be other factors authorities are overlooking. Anytime I see a fatal truck rollover, I can't help wondering if it really needed to be fatal.

There are many crashes similar to this one which should be relatively minor or at least survivable, but the poor construction of the truck causes it to be crushed too easily. This is an issue in the trucking industry which puts countless unsuspecting truckers at risk. These lazy manufacturers can directly contribute to someone losing their life in a crash like this, which is why it's important they're held accountable whenever possible. Could it be that investigations would show something like that happened here?
