Commentary on Gary Carter Truck Accident in West Hartford

With a multi-vehicle wreck this complex, it's crucial folks don't go jumping to conclusions. A tractor-trailer supposedly hitting a line of traffic is obviously concerning, but there can be unusual circumstances that authorities have yet to consider.

For example, I handled a wreck where a truck driver lost control suddenly and crashed. With our independent investigations, we found that the driver had serious medical issues that would eventually lead to a crash if he kept driving. He was taking risks to make ends meet, but his employer ignored the risks, allowing him to put himself and others in danger.

It's possible something unusual like that happened here, and families deserve to know they're getting the full story about what happened to their loved one. Are those steps being taken here?
