Commentary on 18-wheeler Rollover on Highway 41 in Georgetown County

With a crash like this, it's important people understand that it's not all about what exactly caused the wreck. Don't get me wrong--that's obviously important. But commercial truck rollovers in particular can present unique challenges that require experienced investigators. Why is that?

One factor, for example, is that rollovers do not always have to be so serious. The technology has existed for some time now for trucks to better protect drivers in a rollover. This only works to a certain severity, of course, but sometimes crashes like this end up being fatal when they don't need to be. Looking into that here could show that, mistake or not, this driver may have survived in a truck built by another manufacturer. Authorities aren't generally equipped to handle such specific details, which is why I do what I can to inform people about the potential hurdles following a deadly truck wreck.
