Commentary on Danny Stidham, Carl McDonald Semi-Truck Accident in Boone County

A crash like this is no doubt going to present significant challenges due simply to how complex commercial vehicle accidents can be. One truck is challenging enough, but two without any survivors is only going to make things more difficult if authorities don't have the proper training an equipment. Frankly, it's unlikely they will. One of the reasons I'm so adamant about independent investigations is precisely because I've seen how often authorities overlook important details that are crucial for getting families the help and the answers they deserve. It remains to be seen, then, if proper steps are being taken here to ensure the right people are looking in to what ultimately caused this tragic accident and how it all could have been avoided.
