Commentary on Madonna Mawk Semi-Truck Accident in Fulton County

I always take early details with a grain of salt. Across hundreds of commercial vehicle wrecks, I learned how often those details can prove to be incomplete or outright wrong. But the allegations made against the surviving driver here certainly raise some red flags.

It's entirely possible for someone to be in an accident that isn't their fault, but they just happened to be doing something else wrong at the time. If the allegations here are true, maybe that's what happened here. But as they say, where there's smoke, there's fire. It's obviously an exaggeration, but a truck driver with false logs and a tool typically used to avoid getting caught speeding sure is a lot of smoke. It makes me wonder if steps are being taken to properly investigate this tragedy and ensure the victim's loved ones are getting the full story.
