Commentary on Amber Wiggins 18-wheeler Accident in Baldwin County

When folks see someone hit the back of another ve3hicle, they tend to automatically assume that driver did something wrong. Let me give an example of why that's so ridiculous.

Amber N. Wiggins Killed in 18-wheeler Accident in Baldwin County, AL

A while back, I was looking into a situation similar to the one described here. Someone hit the back of an 18-wheeler on the highway during the late hours of the day. Weeks later,however, it came to light that the 18-wheeler pulled off the shoulder without turning its lights on. The victim simply had no time to react. Would it be at all reasonable if the law put the victim at fault just because they hit the back of the truck? Of course not. It's nuanced enough to consider the actions of the other drivers involved.

Now, I can't say what did or didn't happen here. All I can say is that there is no reason I can see right now why this tragedy shouldn't get just as much attention as any other serious wreck. Whether the victim made a mistake or is the victim of circumstances beyond their control, her loved ones deserve to know they're getting the full story.
