Commentary on Truck Accident on Brown Ave in Manchester

There's a lot of reasons a big rig might leave the roadway, and I hope for the sake of the victim's loved ones that investigators will carefully and thoroughly consider each one. It's important to learn the whole story--not just to ensure that the people affected know the truth, but also because clear facts are typically needed to ensure they get the help they deserve in the wake of such tragic incidents.

Having said that, I have some misgivings about how much time and care police will devote to learning the truth. I don't mean to insult their hard work, but competing priorities and limited resources sometimes mean they must hastily go through the scene and come up with a plausible theory--then move on without taking a closer look. Maybe that won't happen here, but the people who lost a loved one deserve to know every effort was made to learn the whole story of how and why that happened. Can police deliver that certainty?
