Commentary on Charles Honeywell Semi-Truck Accident in Warren County

When it comes to crossovers, a big misconception is that the details are straight-forward because investigators can clearly see which vehicle crossed the center line. That's not always true. Vehicles can move in all kinds of unpredictable ways during a crash, and it takes thorough accident reconstruction to set the facts straight. While I can't speak to the efficacy of authorities handling this situation, authorities in general don't always have the experience and tools to find out what really happened.

That's how one gets into a situation like a family that came to me a while back. Police said their loved one went over the center line and hit a semi-truck. Once we had more thorough independent accident reconstructions conducted, though, it turned out that was just plain wrong. What really happened was the truck drifted over the center line, so the victim swerved left to avoid it. The truck driver, however, veered back into their original lane where the collision then occurred. The investigating officer wasn't experienced enough to consider that the vehicle that ended up in its original lane isn't necessarily blameless.

Again, this isn't to speculate about this particular crash. This is all to emphasize to folks the importance of letting the evidence speak for itself. If nothing else, it can help to ensure that a grieving family gets the resolution they deserve, one way or the other.
