Commentary on William McMillian Semi-Truck Accident in Franklin County

When it comes to serious wrecks like this, it's important folks don't simply take the early details at face value. They could be entirely accurate and backed up by evidence. There are times, however, that there is a lot more to the story police have yet to reveal.

A while back, for example, I handled a situation with similar initial details. Authorities said a car drifted over the center line and hit an 18-wheeler head-on. As we dug into things, however, it came to light that police got the facts wrong.

What actually happened was the 18-wheeler went into oncoming lanes, so the victim swerved left to avoid it. The 18-wheeler then veered back into its original lane where the vehicles collided. The investigating officer simply was inexperienced and didn't have the tools needed to do the investigations properly. Had there not been more thorough investigations, it's possible the family never would have learned the truth. Perhaps similar steps wouldn't reveal anything unusual here, but there's no good reason to leave that up to chance.
