Commentary on Brett Wade Sissell Truck Accident in Waxahachie

Is a crash like this worthy of more thorough investigations to find any possible complex factors authorities missed? Most likely. Folks may not think so, considering they tend to think someone rear-ending a vehicle on the shoulder is automatically at fault. That's simply not true, even though it is often the case.

I'll give an example. One factor I rarely see authorities bring up is the rules surrounding a tractor-trailer parking along a highway. 18-wheelers can be serious hazards even at a standstill, which is why experienced drivers know to put out markings orr flares to ensure traffic is well aware of the obstruction. Even in a situation like this--perhaps especially so--that's a possibility worth considering, however likely it may or may not be.
