Commentary on Fatal Tow Truck Accident on Route 8 in Brookfield

Just to be clear up front, I don't know anything special about what happened here. The only caution I would offer to folks reading these details is to simply take the details with a grain of salt. These early reports don't often know all the facts, and sometimes there can be unusual circumstances to consider.

For example, I looked into this crash a while back where someone hit a truck on the highway, and police just assumed the driver wasn't paying attention. Weeks later, though, further investigations discovered the truck actually didn't have its lights on at the time of the collision and only turned them on after the crash. The same could happen here, and I'd say a child losing their life is more than worth some prudence until it can be made certain we're getting the whole story.
