Commentary on Grapeland Man Truck Accident on US 287 in Anderson County

Folks tend to see information from "witnesses" and take it as gospel. Witnesses are vital sources of information, but they're just one piece of the puzzle.

For all we know, that "witness" was actually a lawyer for the trucking company. I know that sounds like a boogeyman lawyers talk about around the campfire, but I wouldn't believe it myself had I not personally seen such tactics. It's important people understand these potential hurdles and how to ensure the evidence can speak for itself, regardless of whether or not it confirms the initial reports.
