Commentary on Lashel Dawn Oliver Truck Accident in Todd County
Something that makes a crash like this challenging is simply that the victim isn't here to tell their side of the story. While no one can really say what happened here without knowing all the facts, it's important that victims and families always anticipate the obstacles that could stand between them and getting those answers.
Commercial trucks are specifically challenging in that regard. Trucking companies are not in the habit of being transparent and doing what they can to give families the answers they need. In fact, they're more likely to attempt to tilt the scales in their favor. Maybe that won't be the case here, but understanding these potential challenges could help folks take steps to get clear answers so the evidence can tell this woman's side of the story.
