Commentary on Kenneth Allen Key Tanker Truck Accident in Richmond County

There's a lot we don't know about this crash, so it would be irresponsible for folks to go jumping to conclusions. With that said, there is a particular factor which I feel doesn't get enough attention these days, and I can't help wondering if it's getting any attention here. Put simply, did this crash have to be fatal, or would a higher quality truck have protected the victim?

When it comes to 18-wheeler rollovers, they can become deadly when they should be survivable. This is because many truck manufacturers continue to build trucks without regard for how well-protected the driver is despite that technology existing and being reasonably accessible. If someone dies in a crash because the cabin caves in where trucks from a more responsible manufacturer would have held up, those lazy and negligent manufacturers can be on the hook for their selfish actions. Understanding this could show there's a lot more to this crash than people realize.
