Commentary on Jabali Mani Jacks, Kaylin Riolo Truck Accident in Lebec

It's not unusual for there to be few details so soon after a deadly truck wreck. They can be incredibly complex. I always encourage having experienced independent investigators look into a truck wreck, but one like this only warrants even more careful investigations. This is due to the fact a lot of people are biased against motorcyclists, and this can cause serious issues in the investigations if authorities don't put that bias aside.

Not long ago, for example, a family came to me after police blamed their loved one for speeding and weaving through traffic before hitting a semi-truck. Once we dug into the facts, we proved police completely got the events wrong. A witness told police that the motorcyclist passed them on the left, but they never said the motorcyclist was speeding or being reckless. The officer (a rookie, as it turned out) simply misinterpreted this and failed to verify the details.

I'm not saying anything like that is happening here, but it's a common issue I've had to guide families through many times throughout my career. It's just another reason independent investigators offer crucial resources for victims and families. If nothing else, they can ensure they're getting clear answers. That's especially important if it turns out someone needs to be held accountable for their hardships.
