Commentary on Garrison Man Truck Accident on CR-2 in McLean County

If the allegations here are true, then I have little doubt steps will be taken to ensure there are appropriate consequences. What may surprise some folks, though, is hearing that I would likely not stop investigations simply at the driver said to be at fault. Why is that? Well, the cause of someone's injuries isn't always the cause of the crash itself.

One thing which stands out to me anytime it comes up is a commercial truck overturning. The reason for this is a little-discussed issue with commercial trucks and their ability to withstand rollovers. If a manufacturer puts little or no thought into protecting the occupants of the truck, the vehicle can collapse under its own weight far too easily. In other words, a crash that should be survivable becomes fatal simply due to a manufacturer's laziness.

I certainly can't say if that happened here without more thorough investigations, but it's crucial to understand these potential factors and to act accordingly.
