With crashes like this, one of the biggest challenges is simply ensuring police got all the facts. Their efforts aren't always as thorough as folks would hope. Not even that long ago, I looked into a deadly crossover where police actually got the facts wrong.

The investigating officer was rather inexperienced and wasn't given proper equipment from his department. As a result, he blamed someone for crossing the center line and hitting the truck. In reality, though, evidence clearly showed that the opposite was true. Had there not been more thorough independent investigations, that family may never have learned the truth.

To be clear, there are plenty of times where independent investigations simply confirm what authorities already know. The same could happen here. My only concern immediately following a deadly wreck is that steps are being taken to at least ensure the victims and families are getting the answers they deserve.
