Commentary on Tyler Man Truck Accident on Highway 31 in Chandler

With a crash like this, my main concern is how the initial details came to be. Frankly, a lot of people are quick to blame motorcyclists for a crash even when they don't have all the facts. As such, important information can slip through the cracks.

For example, a family came to me about a crash because police blamed their loved one for driving recklessly and hitting a semi. However, they knew their loved one to be an incredibly safe rider, so they wanted a second opinion. Our investigations revealed the investigating officer misinterpreted witness testimony which told him that the victim passed him on the left. The officer just assumed the motorcyclist was weaving between lanes and blamed him without a second thought.

I'm not saying that's what happened here, but I learned a long time ago not to take details about any motorcycle wreck at face value. Independent investigations could still show there's more to this story.
