Commentary on James Weeks Tractor-Trailer Accident in Jim Wells County

A head-on crash like this is almost always complex due simply to the sheer damage the collision causes. The vehicle was no doubt unrecognizable, which is why it's always so important that investigators have the experience and equipment to ensure nothing important slips through the cracks. Unfortunately, authorities cannot always offer such resources. Why is that? Put simply, it's usually that their department has other priorities. If officers don't have the right training or tools, regardless of how skilled they may be, they likely are going to miss something important. It's important that folks understand these shortcomings so they can also understand the steps needed to overcome them.
