Commentary on 18-wheeler Accident on Highway 167 in Batesville
It's not exactly unusual for there to be so few details about a serious commercial truck wreck this soon after it happens. These can be incredibly complex accidents, and without the right experience and equipment, there can be some details even authorities aren't equipped to handle on their own. It's one of the reasons I always talk about the importance of independent investigations, and I'm sure that approach would prove useful for the loved ones of the victim here, as well.
