Commentary on Crossover Accident on Rt 381 in Tyre

It's important to keep an open mind and investigate carefully after just about any crash because the details may not be as straightforward as they seem. Even with something like an apparent crossover wreck, steps should be taken to ensure all the facts are truly clear.

For example, I handled a similar accident not long ago in which a victim was thought to have crossed left of center and fatally crashed with a big rig. Our independent experts looked again on the victim's behalf, though, and found police actually made a mistake. The victim wasn't the first to cross over, as the truck driver drifted left of center first. The victim swerved left to avoid it but the truck driver corrected course at the same time back into its lane, causing the vehicles to crash.

I don't bring that up to suggest the exact same thing happened in New York. My point is rather that authorities aren't always as thorough as folks may think, which can lead to important details slipping through the cracks. Having experienced independent investigators look into things could be a crucial step forward for getting whatever answers and help can come from this situation.
