Commentary on Charles Grady Sharp Truck Accident in Cherokee County

Something to keep in mind with crashes like this is that folks are quick to assume the driver must have done something wrong. Is that possible? Absolutely. But how many people looked at the hundreds of people killed by the GM ignition switch defect and assumed they got themselves killed? The public didn't know about the issue for years, and it took independent investigations to finally reveal the truth. I'm not saying that happened here, of course, but it can be helpful for people to learn why a deadly wreck like this warrants thorough investigations. If nothing else, the victim's loved ones deserve to know they're getting full story.
