Commentary on Gladewater Man Truck Rollover Accident on CR-317 in Henderson County
While finding out the cause of a given crash is always important, it's not always the only factor to consider. In a crash like this, for example, a more experienced investigator will to know also look into the condition of the victim's truck. There's an issue authorities overlook far too often where trucking manufacturers fail to build trucks up to modern safety capabilities. As such, they crumple far too easily in rollovers, and drivers are seriously hurt or killed when they would otherwise be okay. Did anyone look into that here?
