Commentary on Terry Tackett Truck Accident in Pittsburgh
It's not unusual for there to be few details available so soon after a fatal wreck, especially one involving a commercial vehicle. The concern, however, is if authorities are really giving it the attention it deserves. Frankly, departments don't always equip their officers with the training and tools needed to look into a complex crash scene. As a result, crucial details can easily slip through the cracks. That's why I try to inform people as much as possible about the challenges surrounding these accidents and what can be done to get the victims and families the help they deserve.
