Commentary on Bells Man 18-wheeler Accident on I-20 in Harrison County

Folks tend to assume that a rear-end collision is automatically the fault of the person failing to control speed. That is often true, but not always. I don't make exceptions for truck drivers, despite how people tend to see lawyers. I know that all kinds of things can go wrong, and authorities may not have the experience or equipment to give both drivers the benefit of the doubt and let the facts speak for themselves. Could further independent investigations show that there was more to this than just someone being inattentive? At the very least, serious injuries likely make it worth the effort.
