There isn't much information yet about how exactly this crash happened or what caused it, but given the serious injuries that followed a careful investigation seems in order. To find the whole story police should look into many possible factors including:

  • Operator errors like distraction, speeding, or failure to yield;
  • Problems or defects in the vehicles;
  • Road conditions and design;
  • Visibility, lighting and sightlines;
  • Inclement weather;
  • Other traffic in the area; and
  • Any other potential factors that might have contributed to or caused the accident.

A thorough investigation is important after just about any accident, and until more dots are connected it's best not to jump to conclusions. However, a "by the book" police investigation might not find all the details before concluding. That's why after major accidents--particularly ones involving commercial trucks--I often suggest independent investigations by experienced professionals to better ensure the whole truth is found. Whatever is learned, those affected deserve to know that no stone was left unturned.
