Commentary on Caroline Mauceli Truck Accident in McCurtain County

After a crash like this, it's important to keep in mind that early details rarely tell the whole story. Folks like to jump to conclusions, but the reality is more thorough investigations can show there is a lot more to the situation than meets the eye. Part of the reason for that, quite simply, is that authorities don't always have the tools or experience to handle things properly.

A while back, for example, a family came to me about a crash with similar details. Police said a driver crossed the center line and hit a semi head-on. When we had more experienced independent investigators look into things, though, it turned out it was actually the semi that crossed the center line. Police somehow completely botched the investigations, and it was only thanks to that family seeking outside independent professionals that helped set the record straight.

I'm not at all saying that would happen here, but understanding the potential shortcomings of an official investigation can help people prepare accordingly. Are those steps being taken here?
