Commentary on Garlin Kinnebrew Tanker Truck Accident in Columbus
With a crash like this, it can be a bit too easy for folks to take early details at face value. The reality is a commercial truck wreck this serious is likely going to require more thorough investigations from experienced accident reconstructionists. It's not always as simple as just seeing if someone was fatigued, drunk, or on their phone. For all we know, the driver suffered a medical emergency or a mechanical issue. It's possible the few details that are currently available aren't even accurate.
I can't begin to count how many times families came to me with police reports only for independent investigations to show they missed something important. The same could prove true here, which is why folks need to understand the potential shortcomings of simply waiting around instead of seeking out experienced professionals.
