Commentary on Winnsboro Woman Truck Accident on FM 557 in Camp County
When it comes to a crash like this, folks may be quick to assume the driver did something wrong. That's certainly common, and authorities no doubt looked into that. Something I see authorities overlook too often, though, is the possibility of mechanical issues. Whether it's an employer forcing drivers to operate trucks in a state of disrepair or some unforeseeable manufacturing issue which has yet to be addressed, not every crash like this is the driver's fault. Understanding these possible factors could help bring something to light which authorities let slip through the cracks. Will that be true here?
