Commentary on Everest Derrick Williams 18-wheeler Accident in Parmer

If this played out the way reports say, it seems pretty unlikely this would have happened with a reasonably prudent professional truck driver. Something as simple as making a left turn on a highway shouldn't result in serious injuries, even this early in the morning. Perhaps there are extenuating circumstances to consider. I'm certainly not suggesting blaming someone without a proper investigation. But thinking reports like this make for an open-and-shut case is simply not true.

With any serious truck wreck comes many barriers victims and families will need to overcome. A basic yet integral tool for them, then, is evidence. Trucking companies have all kinds of strategies to avoid responsibility, and having the experience and tools to challenge those tactics can make the difference between a family getting left in the wind and a family getting the help they deserve. It remains to be seen if steps are being taken here to ensure the facts are straight, but the crash can still prove as an opportunity for folks to understand why relying on police alone is rarely enough.
