Commentary on Bobby Ray Johunkin Truck Accident in Dallas

Something I talk about a lot on this blog is the idea that someone rear-ending another vehicle is automatically at fault. First of all, that's just not true. The law is nuanced enough to consider why the collision happened. But would it be true here? Well, that depends.

One can't help but notice one of the vehicles involved outright left the scene. If they saw what happened and didn't stop, there's a good chance they know they screwed up. If the timing of events shows that the victim simply couldn't have reasonably avoided the collision, then it would be ridiculous to lay the blame on him. However, if evidence shows a reasonably prudent driver could have avoided the collision, investigations would need to find what made this situation different.

At the end of the day, a man lost his life here. Steps should be taken to ensure his loved ones are getting all the facts. Those steps could even help authorities connect the dots and identify the other driver that left the scene.
