Commentary on Lamont Jackson Snow Plow Truck Accident in Coxsackie
There's not much specific information about what went wrong here, and I'm certainly not going to jump to conclusions. One I do want to caution folks about, though, is just how complex things can get when it comes to fires and commercial vehicles. A lot of things can spark a fire, and not much of it is foreseeable or preventable during a chaotic collision.
But there are times where a fire is the result of poor manufacturing decisions, and victims that die due to those fires may have survived in vehicles made by more responsible companies. That's just one possibility here, but it's important folks understand there are all kinds of factors investigators need to look into. If investigators here aren't considering all of these possibilities, then the details may need to be in the hands of more experienced professionals.
