Commentary on Gary Vogt Accident in Glencoe

It sounds from reports like this crash was essentially due to a big rig being somewhere it shouldn't be--overturned across a highway's travel lane in the dark. Obviously one of the first big details to learn is exactly how and why it ended up there; jumping to any conclusions about driver mistakes or vehicle failures would be a mistake before clear facts and evidence can tell the real story.

Depending on what investigators learn about what sent the truck through the median, though, the result of that is a multi-ton roadblock in the victim's path. That clearly had terrible consequences, so there may be questions of accountability to resolve with that truck driver and his employer.

Here's where things get tricky, though: Trucking companies are known for refusing to accept any liability for damage their drivers cause right up til the moment that overwhelming evidence leaves them no choice. No matter how damning reports may seem, the company's likely to have some tricks up its sleeve to help it dodge liability. It's important that victims and families know what might lie ahead should they try to get answers or help after an accident like this one. Click below to learn more.
