Commentary on Bryan Paul McBride 18-wheeler Accident in Taylor County
With crashes like this, folks tend to take the details at face value. Over 30 years, though, I learned that a serious truck wreck is rarely as straight-forward as it may seem. For example, there was one I looked into not long ago involving a driver rear-ending an 18-wheeler. Weeks after initial investigations, though, more thorough investigations revealed the 18-wheeler had cut off the victim from the shoulder without turning its lights on.
Put simply, authorities can miss important information if they aren't experienced or properly equipped. That's why it's crucial to take steps to ensure nothing slips through the cracks. Perhaps efforts would show something similar happened here.
