Commentary on Dual Truck Accident on I-40 in Knoxville
Something I discuss a lot on this blog is how authorities aren't always keen to be thorough with commercial truck accident reconstruction. It's rarely the fault of individual officers. Departments simply prioritize other things more highly, leaving officers without the training, time and tools needed to look into something as chaotic as two large trucks crashing. Between the inherent challenge of the vehicles and the two company no doubt fighting to avoid responsibility, it's important to understand these shortcomings and what steps can be taken to overcome them and get people the help and answers they need.
