Something that wasn't properly addressed in these initial details is just how slowly the other truck was going. It's one thing if someone is going 60 MPH on an 80 MPH road due to delicate cargo or some other issue. However, a vehicle going slow enough can create an unnecessary hazard for other motorists. Folks typically know that driving 15 MPH, let's say, on the freeway is incredibly dangerous. Was that what happened here, or was this just a simple result of inattentive driving? It may take more thorough independent investigations to get answers.
