Commentary on Jesus Ayala-Serrano, Jesus Felipe-Moreno, Marquez Borjas Santos Truck Accident in Covington

If the allegations in this crash prove true, then it's at least somewhat encouraging to know someone will have a day in court to answer for actions which allegedly led to three people losing their lives. But when it comes to commercial vehicle wrecks, simply putting all the blame on one person isn't always so prudent.

It's entirely possible for any given truck wreck to be just some unpredictable, reckless action by the driver. Other times, however, there were signs and decisions which made the crash inevitable, and a negligent employer did nothing to prevent people from getting hurt.

That's why prudent independent investigators are often more thorough than the police, who generally only look for charges to file. Did this driver work for a company? Did they have a history of reckless driving? Were they trained properly? Forced to driving long hours? Handling poorly maintained equipment? Encouraged to drive recklessly for the sake of expedience?

These are all things I've dealt with when confronting companies over the years, and I've seen how helpful it can be to victims and families to put that evidence in their hands to help tell their side of the story. That's why it's important that when people read about accidents like this one, they don't take what they see for granted. They have to understand the importance of leaving nothing up to question and ensuring the victims and families have all the facts fighting on their behalf.
