Commentary on Truck Accident on I-45 at FM 1765 in La Marque
As straight-forward as all this may seem, something sticks out to me, and I wonder if authorities ever gave it close attention. Police allege the truck driver here had no license. What kind of truck was this, exactly? Was it just a rental? Did the driver not have their license on them, or are they totally unlicensed? If this truck belongs to an employer, why is it in the possession of an unlicensed driver? Would that hypothetical company have other drivers on the road unqualified to safely do their jobs?
Likely or not, these are important questions which often require independent investigations to answer. Getting help to those who need it means ensuring those answers come to light as soon as possible.
