Commentary on James Lynn Feltman Semi-Truck Accident in Germantown Township

It's not often a semi vs passenger vehicle accident ends with the truck driver getting the worst of the consequences. However, the details saying the truck overturned can absolutely explain that. It should go without saying that determining the cause of the crash is absolutely crucial. However, it's possible there were other factors leading to the victim's death which authorities often overlook. Could it be that the victim's truck itself is the reason his injuries were fatal?

A little-discussed issue in the industry is how many truck manufacturers neglect to take any measures to adequately protect their customers in a rollover. As a result, commercial trucks basically collapse in a situation where they should be relatively able to withstand the crash. This means crashes which could be surviviable turn fatal. Manufacturers need to answer for their actions (or lack thereof) when people are harmed as a result. Perhaps understanding those possible factors and how to approach them could help lead to clearer answers about what exactly contributed to this tragedy.
