Commentary on Mark Anthony Martin Semi-Truck Accident in Refugio County

I find that folks are always quick to blame drivers in these situations without considering that all kinds of things can lead to commercial vehicle wrecks. Likely or not, it's important investigators have the experience and tools to ensure nothing slips through the cracks. Part of that, though, means considering factors that may not have to do with the crash directly but still contributed to the victim's death. What do I mean by that?

One possibility I rarely see discussed is how many commercial trucks are terrible at protecting their drivers in the event of a rollover. Despite manufacturers having reasonable access to materials and knowledge of how to make trucks more resistant to crushing during a rollover, many of these manufacturers simply don't care. Perhaps looking into that here would show that this man could have survived this crash and made it home to his loved ones.
