Commentary on West Valley City Box Truck Accident on 2700 South

People tend to think collisions with parked vehicles don't need much further investigation. In reality there are several issues that must be looked into beyond simply "who hit whom;" for instance, investigators must learn if the box truck was parked legally.

It's no surprise that people aren't allowed to park anywhere they please on urban roads, and those restrictions are increased for commercial trucks because of how much room they tend to take up. Reports don't say why the box truck was stopped, where exactly it was in relation to the roadway, or what the driver did after parking there, but those are crucial details to work out in pursuit of the whole story. The victims' loved ones deserve the truth; will police efforts alone be enough to get it for them?
