Commentary on Utility Truck Accident on Highway 13 in Cedar Rapids

There isn't much information about what happened here, though that isn't exactly unusual after a complex commercial truck wreck.

The problem is that folks tend to assume police will handle everything, but their departments rarely prioritize accident reconstruction highly enough to provide officers with the time and resources they need. This is why it's helpful for people to understand just how vital independent investigations can be for victims and families. Ensuring they get the full story should always be a top priority, and I see no reason why this accident would be an exception.
