Commentary on Truck Accident on Bayou Road in La Marque
It's challenging to envision a scenario here where the truck driver backs into someone against paving equipment but somehow wouldn't have simply backed into the equipment regardless of whether or not anyone was standing there. It's not exactly easy to miss an object like that, so how the hell was this allowed to happen?
Was the truck driver simply not paying any attention? Is this a work site with poor supervision or a lack of safety procedures? A man shouldn't have to worry about being crushed by a truck while he's working, so it's worth finding out what led this accident and how it all could have been avoided. Whether this was just some reckless truck driver or the result of hazardous work conditions, someone no doubt failed to take actions which would have prevented this man from being sent to the emergency room.
