Commentary on Nikolai Vidinliey Semi-Truck Accident in Culberson County

There are many factors investigators need to look into after a crash like this, but one potential factor seems to elude authorities time and time again. Put simply, rollovers like this don't always need to be fatal. Sometimes, the only reason they're fatal is because the truck manufacturer neglected to build the truck with even the bare minimum of safety. As a result, trucks which should be able to hold up and withstand the rollover crush far too easily, killing truckers in what would otherwise be a survivable crash. It's not clear if that happened here, but folks would be served well to learn about this risk and the possible ways to approach it.
