Commentary on Erick Monterroso Corado Rollover Accident in Pilot Point

The details here seem to suggest that the victim didn't properly navigate the construction zone, but I wouldn't be so hasty to jump to that conclusion. Something to consider in these situations is whether or not the construction zone was zoned off safely. They're not automatically in the clear because they have a bunch of bright orange barrels. If a crew or company unnecessarily and unreasonably puts traffic in danger, they could be responsible for a resulting accident. Were other 18-wheelers able to pass by safely, or was this inevitable?

Additionally, why exactly was the crash ultimately fatal? Most of the time, it's just a matter of how serious the crash was. Sometimes, however, it's a sign the driver's truck was not manufactured with safety in mind, therefore failing to prevent an otherwise avoidable death. That's not the sort of thing authorities tend to look onto on their own. Are steps being taken here to ensure the victim's loved ones get the answers they deserve?
