Commentary on Steven Starr, Katherine Starr Truck Accident in Newton County

One key detail missing from these reports is how exactly the victims were making a u-turn. If they slowed down ahead of time, had their blinker on, and were clearly visible and avoidable, a truck hitting them would likely be a sign the truck driver wasn't paying attention to the road. Otherwise, it's possible they made an abrupt maneuver that left the truck driver without enough time to slow down. It's possible police simply didn't feel the need to release that info publicly, but this can sometimes be a sign they're not really giving the crash the attention it deserves. When it comes to getting a trucking company to take responsibility, victims and families need as much evidence as possible. So if there is evidence showing that someone made a mistake here, it may take more thorough investigations than the authorities are bothering to do on their own.
