Commentary on Multi-Vehicle Accident on Loop 101 in Glendale
There isn't a lot of clear information yet about how exactly this crash happened or what caused it, but considering it claimed a life a careful investigation seems in order. To find the truth of what happened many possible factors must be considered, such as:
- Operator errors like distraction, speeding, or failure to yield;
- Problems or defects in the vehicles;
- Road conditions and design;
- Visibility and sightlines;
- Inclement weather;
- Traffic conditions at the time; and
- Anything else that might have influenced or caused the crash.
From the outside that may sound like overkill, but checking into all those potential factors is important when learning the whole story and determining who or what might be responsible. The people affected by it, including a family who suffered a devastating loss, deserve no less.
Unfortunately rank-and-file police investigators might not go far enough, which is why after major accidents--particularly those involving commercial trucks--I often suggest a second look by independent experts. Sometimes they only confirm what police originally thought, but in many cases they uncover new details that change how a wreck is perceived and what should follow it. Whatever is learned, the people affected deserve to know no stone was left unturned.
