Commentary on Valdosta Trucker Rollover Accident on Highway 19 in Jefferson County

There are all kinds of factors that can lead to a deadly wreck like this, and while folks may be quick to assume the driver did something wrong, they must keep in mind that thorough investigations often show there is more than just the most likely factors involved in a given commercial truck wreck.
