Commentary on Cassandra Kaye Morgan Truck Accident in Harrison County

Folks tend to see a crash like this and think it's all open-and-shut. The cause of the crash may be rather common, such as speeding or distracted driving, but there's something people need to keep in mind: a simple answer is not always enough to ensure there are appropriate consequences. Why do I say this?

Let me give an example. A while back, I handled a situation where a truck driver texting and driving caused a serious wreck. As clear as that seemed, we discovered it was the result of more serious issues. The driver was responding to his supervisor at the time. This guy would hound drivers all day, and if they didn't respond immediately, he'd essentially threaten to fire them because he wanted things done his way. It was inevitable someone would get hurt due to this ridiculous behavior, but the supervisor was either too selfish to care or too stupid to see the risks.

Put simply, when folks come to me for help, getting as much evidence as possible helps ensure they get that help. However, it also helps get them something else they always want to see: accountability. Ensuring people face the appropriate consequences is also prudent in these situations, which is why I wonder if steps were taken here to truly get all the facts of what led to the crash.
