Commentary on Shawn Moore, Kanshi Ram Semi-Truck Accident in Strongsville

There isn't a lot of information about what went wrong here, but a truck running off the highway is almost never the result of acceptable factors. Is it possible this is some one-in-a-million manufacturing defect, road hazard, or medical condition? Sure, and I would never suggest ignoring those possibilities without more thorough investigations. But in my experience with hundreds of commercial vehicle wrecks, this sort of thing is almost always the result of someone's negligence. The question is, who was negligent?

That may sound obvious to some. A truck lost control, so the driver is at fault, right? Well, let me give an example of why thorough investigations are so important. I had a truck wreck come to me a while back which was apparently the result of a medical emergency. As unavoidable as it seemed, though, further investigations revealed it was entirely foreseeable.

The driver's medical records was a long list of clear issues that would cause problems for a commercial truck driver. A responsible company would have seen those red flags and prevented the driver from operating their trucks--for their safety and public safety. Instead, this particular company either didn't bother doing a background check or simply didn't care about the risks.

One of the biggest challenges victims and families face is not necessarily finding out what caused the wreck but rather finding out how it all could have been avoided. If there aren't thorough independent investigations into what happened here, those involved may find they're only getting a piece of the bigger picture. Simply put, a man lost his life here. Shouldn't that warrant every possible step to get his loved ones the full story?
