Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on I-70 in Clay County
While sudden mechanical issues are relatively uncommon, I talk about them a lot simply because they rarely get any attention. It's a problem when authorities don't have the experience or equipment to look into that sort of thing on their own. That's why understanding how these mechanical issues happen can be crucial for getting drivers the help they need after falling victim to events beyond their control.
