When it comes to a situation like this, it's crucial to understand what evidence authorities actually have telling the story. It's important to have all the facts, and frankly, the victim can't tell their side of the story. When you've seen situations like I have where trucking companies use that opportunity to steer the facts in their favor, you'd know how crucial independent investigations are.

Those investigations could show the victim made a mistake. They could show the truck driver wasn't paying attention. They could even show there were unusual factors neither the victim nor the driver had control over. The important thing is simply to ensure that the victim's loved ones know they're getting the full story, and I'm not certain that's happening here.
