Commentary on Truck Accident on I-15 near Harvard

After a crash like this it's important folks don't just assume a few vague sentences in the news is all they really need to know. One vehicle rear-ending another is nothing new, and it is true that such collisions are usually the fault of the rear driver. However, there can sometimes be extenuating circumstances to consider. If steps aren't taken to put the crash in the hands of experienced professionals, important information may be overlooked or misunderstood.

Since folks often just trust that police reports will cover everything and wait for their release, crucial details sometimes slip through the cracks in the meantime. As hard-working as officers generally are, they're not always provided with the tools and time needed to look into the more complex possibilities of a crash. As such, people are sometimes blamed for being careless when a crash like the one on I-15 was actually out of their hands.

Understanding the pitfalls of a "by the numbers" police investigation may help folks understand why a crash like this would likely be better off with independent investigators. Click below to learn more.
