Commentary on Cement Truck Accident on North Redwood Road in Lehi

If what reports say here is true, then it seems outrageous that a truck driver could make such a ridiculous mistake. Little kids on the playground play "Red Light, Green Light." The least we can expect from a professional driver is to stop at a red light. So went wrong here? Despite what folks may think, that answer can make a situation like this car more complex for victims and families. Those challenges may require professionals to properly navigate.

Here's what I mean by that. While a driver can face charges for running a red light, that doesn't necessarily guarantee a straight-forward process to hold them accountable on behalf of the victims and families involved. They still have the burden of proving their side of the story, and details from police alone are rarely enough to accomplish this. Trucking companies are dedicated to avoiding responsibility, so even something seemingly obvious like running a red light can be susceptible to incessant blame-shifting.

That's why crashes like this are best in the hands of experience professionals. They know the right questions to answer to ensure victims and families have as much ammo at their disposal as possible. Does the driver have a history of accidents? Are they properly trained? Does their employer force them into hazardous working conditions? Is the truck regularly maintained? Did something foreseeable and avoidable contribute to the deadly crash? Is this some one-in-a-million crash the truck driver couldn't avoid?

If authorities aren't looking into those things here, then getting help for this person's loved ones will likely mean getting the crash in the hands of professionals who will ask the right questions.
