Commentary on Kevin Mason Truck Accident in Ozaukee County

It's not really clear what caused this crash, but as important as that is to investigate, it may not be the only factor worth considering. Another thing which stands out to me is that the victim's truck overturned. Whenever that happens, I have to wonder: Would this crash have been fatal in a different truck?

There is a rarely discussed issue in the trucking industry with manufacturers refusing to build their vehicles to withstand what should minor or at least survivable crashes. The massive frames of these trucks essentially crush the cabin like they were made of cardboard. If something like that happened here, then perhaps it wasn't the crash itself that killed this man but rather a manufacturer's laziness. Is that something authorities are looking into?

It wouldn't surprise me if this required more thorough independent investigations. Like I said, few people discuss this serious problem, which is why I have the article below to discuss it more in-depth.
