Commentary on Maria Escobedo Aguilera, Elvira Lopez Injured in Truck Accident in Buttonwillow

It's always important in these situations to make sure those involved are getting both sides of the story. With one person killed and another rushed to the hospital, these early reports don't always tell all the facts. In fact, I've seen times where representatives from a trucking company were flown to the scene by helicopter so they could talk to their driver, reporters, and even the police. Tactics like that are exactly why I tell folks they need to ensure the right people are looking into their situation as soon as possible. Maybe nothing shady is happening in the background here, but it's best families know they are at least on level ground searching for answers about what happened.
