According to officials, a 45-year-old Syracuse, New York man was driving a Freightliner tractor-trailer westbound along the interstate. Possibly due to high winds, the tractor-trailer veered off-road where it then overturned.

A 24-year-old man in the truck had non-incapacitating injuries while reports say that a 40-year-old man in the truck had incapacitating injuries. No further information about the crash is available at this time.

Commentary on 18-wheeler Rollover Accident on I-10 in Culberson County

While it's obviously important to consider the factors leading to a crash, it's also important to consider how someone's injuries occurred. The answers don't always line up like folks may think.

For example, rollovers can be unique due to a common issue with the structural integrity of many modern trucks. A lot of manufacturers continue to build trucks without considering how well the cabins will withstand a rollover. As a result, people can be seriously hurt in a crash that would be relatively minor in another better-made truck.

Could it be something like that happened here? I certainly can't say, but that's why independent investigations are so important for getting folks the help they need.
