Commentary on Sharon Steen Rice Truck Accident in Taylor County

I find that a lot of people tend to think that head-on wrecks are simple--find out who crossed the center line, right? Well, that's obviously true, but getting that answer is rarely as simple as one would think. Even authorities may lack the experience needed to do so.

A while back, for example, a family came to me about a crash where police said their loved one veered into an 18-wheeler's path, resulting in a crash. Once we actually had independent investigators look into things, however, evidence showed the police completely got the facts wrong. It was actually the 18-wheeler that drifted over first, and the victim had swerved left to try to avoid the truck. The vehicles only ended up in the 18-wheeler's original lane because the truck driver realized what was happening and swerved back to the right.

I'm not saying that happened here, of course, but I don't have the evidence to say one way or another what led to this crash. My point is that folks should understand that experienced professionals are generally necessary for getting all the facts after a serious truck wreck. Is this crash in the hands of experienced professionals?
