Commentary on Truck Accident on Georgetown Rd in Cleveland
It's not clear what happened here, but any serious crash is worth getting into the hands of experienced professional investigators. That's not to knock the hard (and often thankless) work police do, but in many cases waiting for them to turn up some real answers doesn't work out as well as it ideally should. If the officers assigned to the crash are inexperienced or insufficiently equipped, crucial details may slip through the cracks.
Maybe that won't be an issue here and police will get to the bottom of things, but I think most would agree that the victim's family deserves to know absolutely no stone was left unturned in pursuit of the whole story.
