Commentary on Truck Accident on Toll Gate Hill Road in Moravia
When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks like this, folks are quick to just blame the driver. Frankly, that's the most common explanation, given things like distracted driving and fatigue. But there must also be consideration into other possibilities, however unlikely they may be.
For example, I've had truck drivers come to me about a serious wreck where authorities didn't even bother checking maintenance records or having someone look at the truck. Without considering mechanical issues, something major can easily slip through the cracks. Likely or not, have steps been taken to consider what all may have led to this crash? Perhaps more thorough investigations will be necessary?
