Commentary on Harvey Broussard 18-wheeler Accident in St. Landry Parish

With a crash like this, it's obviously important to find out what led to the crash. That said, there is another potential factor which authorities tend to overlook. Put simply, truck rollovers sometimes become fatal when they should have been survivable.

A lot of trucks out there simply aren't build to handle trucks which they should be able to withstand. Unfortunately, many manufacturer would rather penny pinch and pass the cost on to their customers--the cost being hard working drivers dying or being seriously hurt due to these shortcuts. While I can't say if that happened here or not, understanding this possible factor can be crucial for any family affected by a tragedy like this one.
