It's obviously important to find out what caused a crash like this, but there could even be other factors authorities are overlooking. For instance, I rarely see them examine the condition of the truck's cabin. This can be crucial given that a lot of trucks can be safer, but their manufacturers neglect to build their trucks with the necessary safety features. As a result, crashes which could otherwise be relatively minor become serious or even fatal. Is that something authorities at least looked into here?
