Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on Highway 256 in Hall County
With a crash this serious, I don't see police bring up "speed and no seatbelts," and think, "Gee, that's what happened?" Instead, I wonder if their statements are based off evidence or gut instinct. The reality is commercial truck wrecks are incredibly challenging without the right experience and equipment. Some officers offer that, but many departments simply won't see many crashes this intense. As a result, they may not have the right tools or training to actually get clear answers about what happened. That's why I can't help wondering if there are more experienced investigators looking into what happened here? One way or another, getting help for those involved is going to require letting the evidence speak for itself.
