Commentary on James Morton Truck Accident in Burleson

Folks tend to see a rear-end collision and they just assume the victim is automatically in the wrong. Common as that may be, it's irresponsible to make those kinds of hasty assumptions. There's no telling what continued investigations could bring to light.

For example, I was looking into a crash not long ago with similar details. However, the crash occurred at night, and investigators eventually found that the truck the victim hit had just merged off the shoulder without turning its lights on. What folks no doubt brushed off as someone speeding or on their phone turned out to be someone killed due to someone else's negligence they had no way of avoiding.

I'm not saying that's what happened here, but it would shock people to see how often authorities overlook important details. That's why independent investigations are often necessary for ensuring victims and families get the whole story. Would that prove true here, as well?
