Commentary on Fondren Road Truck Accident in Houston

It's not clear how this crash happened yet, but footage of the scene shows the truck and the car's wreckage stopped just outside a nearby light-controlled intersection. If the car broadsided the semi-trailer as the scene suggests, is it possible one driver or the other ran a light and then the truck dragged the car a short distance further?

That's a plausible theory, but the emphasis must be on "theory" there. The only way to know for certain not only what happened but why is to investigate carefully and thoroughly. All the crash's details should be accounted, and all its possible contributing factors weighed--not just to be sure the truth is learned, but also because clear and indisputable facts are generally necessary to make sure the right parties (if any) are held accountable. Will police take the time and care needed to uncover the whole story, or would the injured victim be better served by the help of independent investigators?
