Major Willie Washington Killed in Truck Accident in Geary County, KS

It's important to avoid jumping to conclusions after accidents like this. There's simply no telling whether or not something unusual happened without more thorough investigations. For all we know, an unusual manufacturing defect led to this awful event. If nothing else, the victim's loved ones deserve to know they're getting the full story. That's why, in my experience, these situations are best handled by independent accident reconstructionists who have the right training and tools to look into even unlikely possible factors. Police efforts alone may only lead to important details slipping through the cracks.
