Commentary on Dwayne Smart, Vasile Mustata, Victor Gonzalez Armored Truck Accident in Lubbock
With a serious crash like this, my main concern is if authorities are really giving it enough attention. As thorough as officers can be, their departments don't always back them up with the time and resources they need to do a proper investigation. As a result, important details can slip through the cracks. For the victims and families in need of help, that simply won't do. Especially with the likelihood of a company involved doing everything they can to avoid responsibility, having the facts is crucial. Knowing what it takes to get the facts is a vital step for anyone in a situation like this.
