Commentary on William Gorman Tractor-Trailer Accident in Pleasants County

Something I talk about a lot on this blog is the importance of being thorough with single-vehicle accidents. Folks are quick to just assume the driver did something wrong, but there are all kinds of possible reasons a vehicle can lose control without the driver being able to avoid it. Not only is a tractor-trailer crash not an exception, it's usually even more complex than a typical car wreck.

For example, one thing to consider is mechanical issues. These are complex machines driven far more than the average car, and they have companies in charge of maintaining them. There are plenty of ways something can go wrong, yet authorities very rarely look into these possibilities. As such, if they aren't doing so here, perhaps that's a sign the crash would be better off in the hands of independent professionals.
