Commentary on Stephanie Hamm, Anna Hamm Truck Accident in Hannibal
The initial details suggest that the victims' vehicle cut over into the path of the semi. If that's true, it could be an example of why I tell folks not to simply blame someone because they rear-ended someone. If a truck is just minding their own business and someone cuts them off, they may not have any chance of avoiding a collision. That said, it's important to take early details with a grain of salt. I've had many situations like this come to me where it turned out police only ever spoke with a trucking company rep, and the victims were taken to the hospital before they could tell their side of the story. Could it be that something like that happened here?
