Commentary on Truck Accident on Harris Road in Arlington
It's not entirely clear if authorities are certain that rain was a factor here or if they're speculating simply because it was raining at the time. One of my biggest concerns with relying solely on the authorities is they don't always give a crash the attention it needs. Officers may be inexperienced, may not be provided with the tools they need, or may be pulled to other responsibilities their supervisors feel are more important. As a result, details can slip through the cracks, making it more difficult to get people the help they need. Were steps taken here to make sure nothing important went overlooked?
