Commentary on Amazon Truck Accident on Highway 50 in Johnston County

There isn't a ton of information available about this yet, but the initial details are more than concerning. A commercial van backing onto a dark road is obviously dangerous, which is why a reasonably prudent driver would know to be absolutely certain no one was approaching. It seems pretty darn obvious that something went wrong in that regard.

Whatever that may be, an important step following any commercial vehicle wreck is making sure there are thorough independent investigations. Insurance companies and the companies that own the truck are always working diligently to avoid as much responsibility as possible. That's true enough with some mom and pop business, let alone one of the largest companies in the world. At the very least, victims and families need to know they can keep the scales balanced and get the resolution they deserve. Are efforts being made to ensure that happens here?
