Commentary on Ever Jose Reyes Obando 18-wheeler Accident in Baytown
I'm a bit shocked there isn't more information about what happened here, considering how alarming the initial details are. If true, the authorities are saying some truck driver cut a vehicle off from the shoulder, and someone was killed. When I see little attention paid to something so awful, my main concern is if some outside party may be pulling strings behind the scenes.
Put simply, any crash involving a commercial truck is one which will likely involve a trucking company. They have one priority: avoid responsibility. Some companies will simply work within the rules and do what they can to minimize damages. Others stoop to depths so low they have to dig to get there. I've seen everything from companies lying to lawyers taking a helicopter to the crash scene to an insurance rep literally stealing evidence so they could make up a bogus defense.
I have no specific reason to think that happened here, but I learned long ago that it's best to follow up on these suspicions even if it's just an abundance of caution. If nothing else, the family affected by this tragedy deserve answers.
