Commentary on Anthony Dwaine Bolin 18-wheeler Accident in Lorena

Any crash involving a commercial truck is going to present unique challenges, but a crash involving multiple is only going to be that much more arduous without the right tools and experience. That's why it's so important to ensure experienced professionals handle complex wrecks like this. Otherwise, something important may slip through the cracks which authorities alone may not be able to catch.

For example, one thing that stands out to me is the possibility one of the deceased was outside their vehicle when the second collision occurred. If that happened, it would suggest that there was time between the two collisions. How visible was the disabled pickup, then?

If a crash happens directly in front of an 18-wheeler, it's reasonable that truck driver may not have time to react and avoid the collision. But if someone is stationary in the road and other drivers are able to see and go around that vehicle, a truck driver failing to also avoid may have been doing something wrong, like looking at their phone, for example.

I'm not saying that happened here, of course. That's just one possibility. But the fact of the matter is these reports do not paint a clear picture, and there could be crucial information the victims and families involved have yet to hear. Are steps being taken to ensure they get the answers they deserve?
