Commentary on Franklin Culler Truck Accident in Harrison County
It's obviously concerning to see any vehicle hit someone on the shoulder, but if anyone understands that these situations aren't always so clear-cut, it's other truckers. One thing to consider, for example, is if the truck on the shoulder was parked legally.
There are particular rules to follow when stopping on the interstate. Failing to follow those rules can be deadly for just about anyone--including the drivers of the parked trucks. I can't say what happened here without more thorough investigations, but it's important folks learn about these possibilities so they understand why jumping to conclusions can be so detrimental for a family in need of answers.
