Commentary on Jeffrey Carl Oliver Car Accident in Vidor

While it's not entirely clear what led to this crash, police saying it was due to an 18-wheeler failing to reduce speed is obviously very concerning. I don't take such details at face value, of course. 30 years and hundreds of commercial vehicle wreck cases doesn't teach you to go with the most obvious explanation; it teaches you to let the evidence speak for itself. Whether or not authorities can get that evidence is where the challenge lies.

Folks tend to think that early details blaming a driver makes a situation open-and-shut. With a commercial vehicle involved, that's almost never true. That's because there is a company looking to tip the scales in their favor however they can. They can say police got the facts wrong. They can have representatives at the scene talking to witnesses and authorities. They can blame the victims for just about anything they can imagine. At the end of the day, it's the evidence that's going to show what truly did or didn't happen. Are steps being taken here to get those answers?
