Commentary on Laura Winspear Truck Accident in Erie County

It's obviously important to find out what caused a single-truck wreck, but something authorities often overlook is the environment surrounding the victim's injuries. Here's what I mean by that. There's a common issue with commercial trucks where manufacturers don't take steps to ensure the cabin can withstand what should be relatively minor wrecks.

A lot of truck drivers end up hurt or killed because a rollover which should be no big deal (in terms of the driver's health) becomes more serious because the truck isn't built well. Is that something that contributed here? I certainly can't say with the current information, but it's one of the reasons folks need to learn about these possible factors so they can ensure investigators are getting them the answers they deserve.
