Commentary on Kingsville Man Truck Accident on FM 666 in Nueces County

Folks may be quick to write off a crash like this because reports say the driver fell asleep. Pretty open-and-shut, right? Well, maybe not. What if the injuries here weren't necessarily the result of the crash itself?

One thing to consider, for example, is the truck overturning. While that can easily be a serious situation, some crashes should be relatively minor but are only serious because the truck's poor structural integrity gives way far too easily, crushing the driver's cabin. As a result, crashes which could be minor end up far more serious--sometimes fatal.

This is an issue in the truck manufacturing industry which doesn't get enough attention. While it's just a possibility here, it's important investigators with the right experience and equipment consider these things to ensure those involved in the crash are getting the attention they deserve.
