Commentary on Bradley Strese, Jordan Shaw Truck Accident in Winthrop

People tend to see a crash involving a vehicle parked along a highway and assume that driver couldn't possibly have done anything wrong. Oftentimes, that's true, but it's important to avoid jumping to conclusions until all the facts are clear. Certain factors can make a driver liable for contributing to an accident even if they weren't driving at the time.

Things like poor maintenance, running out of gas, pulling over in a dangerous place to sleep, failing to properly mark a truck--these are all possible reasons a vehicle on the shoulder may still contribute to a serious crash. However, it's also important to consider how another driver would leave a lane of travel and hit someone who was out of the way on the shoulder. Were they distracted? Fatigued? Experiencing a medical emergency? Trying to pull over for their own mechanical issues?

Likely or not, it's important investigators have the experience to consider all of these possibilities. Whether one driver did something wrong, both, or even neither, getting answers as soon as possible is vital to getting folks the help they deserve. I see no reason why this crash would be an exception to that.
