Commentary on Danny Baxter Accident in Carroll County

With a crash like this, folks can often get caught up in the most obvious issue of finding out what caused it. That's clearly of utmost importance, but it may actually be just a piece of a larger puzzle. For instance, something I rarely see anyone talk about is how a lot of truck rollovers like this shouldn't actually be fatal. Sometimes a driver loses his life because the truck he's in really wasn't built with his or anyone's safety in mind.

Too many manufacturers don't lend much thought to the people who will operate their trucks, or how best to protect those people out on the road. That lack of consideration, and the way it influences semi-truck construction, can mean a bad rollover accident becomes far worse than it realistically had to be.

I'm not pointing any fingers at whoever made the truck in Carroll County, but poor manufacturing is just one of the possible contributing factors that a careful investigation must consider.
