Commentary on Mobile Home Accident on US-90 in Harris County

It's obviously concerning to see any vehicle hit another one on the shoulder, but these situations aren't always as clear-cut as people might think. The investigation may largely focus on why and how the victim ran off the road, but there are other important details to work out. For instance, investigators must learn if the truck on the shoulder was parked legally.

Truck drivers are required to follow specific federal guidelines when stopping on or by the interstate. Failing to follow those rules can have deadly consequences, yet on many occasions commercial drivers roll those dice.

More thorough investigations are still needed to say exactly what happened here, but it's important to realize that few accidents--perhaps least of all those between commercial vehicles--are really as simple as a few sentences in the news make them sound. Folks should learn about their possible factors and refrain from jumping to any conclusions.
