Commentary on Single-Vehicle Crash on CR 5102 in Plum Grove

Folks tend to see a single-vehicle crash like this one and start in with some of the "greatest hits" about its possible cause: Were they speeding? Looking at their phone? Asleep? Drunk? It's true that driver errors like those are commonly behind similar accidents, but what if there's more to the story? Issues with the road or even malfunctions in the truck itself could have contributed, and if people too quickly rush to judgment of the driver they might be overlooked.

Crashes like this--and the injuries that follow--aren't always the driver's fault, so making snap judgments before all the dots are really connected doesn't give the victim the benefit of the doubt as he deserves. It's always best to investigate carefully and thoroughly and account for all the possibilities. Click below to read more.
