Commentary on Jasmine Morrison, Tyler Stewart Truck Accident in Columbus

Jasmine Morrison Killed, Tyler Stewart Injured in Truck in Columbus, NY

People tend to see a rear-end collision and just place all the blame on the driver of that vehicle. Frankly, that is the more common situation, considering things like distracted driving. But there are other possibilities to consider. Did the truck have its lights or blinker on? Did it make a wide right turn and cut off the van? Did the van experience any sudden mechanical issues? Is this a notoriously dangerous intersection? Likely or not, someone lost their life here. That alone should warrant steps to consider even unlikely possibilities.
