DeKalb County, IL Truck Accident Kills 1 on Route 38 near Willrett

People see a rear-end collision, and they tend to just assume the rear driver did something wrong. That's entirely possible, but it's important to actually consider the whole context. For example, I was looking into a crash a while back where police blamed someone for rear-ending an 18-wheeler. However, further investigations revealed the 18-wheeler had merged onto a dark highway without its lights on.

While I'm not saying anything like that happened here, it's important to consider the possibility of unusual circumstances like that. If nothing else, it can be an important step toward ensuring a victim's loved ones are getting the full story.
