Commentary on David Timmons Dump Truck Accident in Franklin

Something that always concerns me with incidents like this is whether or not the accidents are getting the attention they need. Frankly, authorities don't always have the experience or tools to look into more complex possibilities surrounding the crash.

For example, I rarely see anyone talking about mechanical issues and how dangerous they can be for truckers. If their company doesn't maintain vehicles properly or if there is some unforeseeable defect, a driver can lose their life due to events entirely beyond their control. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but isn't it worth taking steps to ensure a grieving family is getting the full story?
