Commentary on 18-wheeler Rollover Accident MLK Jr. Blvd. Marshall

While police believe the driver "passing out" may have led to the crash, that doesn't make all of this open-and-shut. Anytime a truck rolls over, it's important to look into one crucial detail: Why was the driver so seriously hurt?

As odd as that may sound, the reality is rollovers like this aren't always that serious--or at least they don't need to be. The problem is that some manufacturers continue to build trucks such that they fail to protect a driver during would should be a relatively minor accident. As a result, drivers are seriously hurt and even killed when they should be more or less okay.

Maybe that didn't contribute to this particular crash, but it's important folks have an understanding of these possibilities since it's something authorities tend to overlook.
