Commentary on Las Vegas Man Truck Accident on I-80 in Cass County
These are certainly concerning details if it's true that a commercial truck was somehow on the wrong side of an interstate. That may lead a lot of people to jump to conclusions, as that is often the result of intoxicated driving. As much as that's worth considering, authorities don't always do their due diligence in looking into other possibilities.
Maybe the driver had medical conditions, maybe there was insufficient signage or lighting in the area, or maybe even the news misinterpreted what authorities said in their statements. That's why it's often necessary for people to have independent investigators look into a crash like this. There may be something important that has yet to come to light.
