Commentary on Melanee McKale, Denis Zinke Semi-Truck Accident in Glenwood
There isn't a lot of information available about this crash, and frankly one doesn't often see the person in the commercial truck come out worse for wear. There may certain be a reasonable explanation for that outcome, but it concerns me that authorities may not be getting all the facts here. A deadly truck like this can be incredibly complex, and if officers don't have the right training or equipment, something important could easily slip through the cracks. Are steps being taken here to ensure that doesn't happen?
