Commentary on Dellany Shane Gross Truck Accident in Waller County
People see rear-end collisions like this as open-and-shut, but there should always be consideration for possibilities which may seem unlikely. Not only does the victim's family deserve to know they're getting the full story, but initial details like these can often miss something crucial.
A while back, for example, I was looking into a crash where a driver died after hitting the back of an 18-wheeler along a highway. Weeks after the initial findings, further investigations revealed that the 18-wheeler had actually merged from the shoulder without immediately turning its lights on. What folks probably wrote off as someone reckless looking at their phone while driving turned out to be a practically invisible 40 ton vehicle cutting someone off.
I'm not at all suggesting that happened here, of course. It's one possibility. So is a medical emergency, so is alcohol, so is defective brakes, so is road hazards, so is another driver that left the scene, etc. Likely or not, a proper investigation will let the evidence speak for itself.
