Rekia Johnson, Child Killed in Truck Accident in Choctaw County, OK

When it comes to a wreck this serious, it's always important to take early details with a grain of salt. There's simply no telling what more there could be to the story. A while back, for example, I was discussing a crash with a college where initial reports said a man ran a stop sign, and a truck t-boned him, killing him. Weeks later, however, following independent investigations, it came to light that there was no stop sign. A construction crew removed it while working, then forgot to replace it when they left for the day. I'm not saying that happened here or even that something like that is common. But there's a family out there in need of answers. It's best to withhold making hasty judgments until it's clear they're getting the facts.
