Commentary on California Man Truck Accident on I-10 in Crockett County

With a crash like this, it's easy for folks to just assume things are open-and-shut. Even if something common led to this crash, knowing the full story can be crucial for getting folks the help they need and ensuring the right people are held accountable for their actions.

I'll give an example. A while back, we handled a case where a truck driver texting and driving caused a wreck. What made the situation unique, however, was that he was responding to a supervisor that all but required him to text and drive. If drivers at that company didn't immediately respond to their boss's incessant calls and texts, they risked getting fired. It was just a matter of time before someone got hurt.

While I'm not saying that happened here, there are plenty of examples among the hundreds of truck wrecks I've handled where police analysis alone simply wasn't enough to ensure those responsible for the victim's injuries were held fully accountable. That's why a crash like this is generally better off in the hands of independent investigators.
