It appears that the incident began after a truck hauling a crane, a white SUV, and a black SUV somehow collided. As a result, the semi-truck ran off-road where it hit the side of a dentist's office. The building was apparently unoccupied at the time.

Due to the collisions, one of the drivers and a young child in one of those vehicles were taken to the hospital. Delaware County officials did not mention any other injuries. Investigations are ongoing.

Commentary on Truck, Building Accident on MacDade in Ridley Township

With a multi-vehicle collision, investigations need to be as thorough as they can be. As obvious as that sounds, it's not necessarily for the reasons folks may think. There certainly can be a chaotic scene left behind which requires experienced professionals to navigate. But one significant challenge comes simply due to one of the vehicles being a commercial truck. The company that owns that truck isn't likely to make anything easier--the opposite is likely true.

Simply put, trucking companies have on priority in these incidents--ensure they take as little responsibility as possible. That's not even to say the truck driver here did anything wrong. It's just that folks looking for help need as much evidence as they can get, and having one crucial part of the crash stonewall victims is only going to make it more challenging to get the full story.

That's why I do what I can to inform people about these potential hurdles and the possible steps that can overcome them.
