Commentary on Pedestrian, Truck Accident on I-10 in Baytown
These are unusual details, to say the least. If there were prior incidents, were there other drivers involved here? Did they leave the scene? Why was the man on the ramp to begin with? Moreover, where are police getting these details? Are there witnesses that can come forward and clear things up? My concern is that a serious accident like this often leaves victims unable to give statements at the scene, as they need to be rushed to a hospital. Authorities tend to follow up, but not always. Are we getting the victim's side of the story here?
