Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on I-70 in Eagle County

I certainly can't say what happened here, but there are certain details which inherently make it crucial to look into things more thoroughly. Any crash involving a commercial truck catching fire can involve unique factors authorities alone are rarely equipped to address on their own.

Specifically, the fact the truck caught fire can be incredibly challenging to address. This is because some trucks that catch fire only do so because their manufacturer put the fuel tanks in a negligent spot that left them too exposed. Perhaps the driver here would have been better off in a truck with a more responsible design. If police haven't looked into that, then there may need to be more thorough independent investigations.
