Commentary on Christian Lint Truck Accident in Portland

When it comes to fatal collisions like this, folks are quick to assume it's just about who had the right-of-way, and police will get answers in no time. In reality, things can be quite a bit more complex. Mechanical issues, medical conditions, drugs and alcohol, poorly designed intersections, missing or faulty signage, issues related to negligent employers or hazardous work environments--over 30 years, I've seen just about any possibility you can imagine lead to a fatal truck wreck.

What makes this important to consider is that not every police investigation is equal. Some officers have seen what I've seen. Others have maybe seen one serious truck accident in their whole career. Without the right experience and tools, important information can easily slip through the cracks. That's why understanding these potential shortcomings can be crucial for a family no doubt in need of answers. Will steps be taken here to make sure nothing important slips through the cracks?
