Commentary on Kenwin Printup Accident in Madison County

On this blog I often talk about the dangers of jumping to premature conclusions--and how often people do that anyway. Take the Alabama wreck above: News reports only vaguely say the victim hit the logs carried by another truck, but long experience tells me some folks will quickly decide that must have happened because he made a mistake at the wheel. Is that possible? Of course, but until clear evidence can tell the story so are many other things. Anything from bad road conditions to vehicle failures to medical emergencies could be involved, and it's important to learn all the wreck's circumstances rather than speculate.

The fact of the matter is commercial vehicle accidents are about as complex as a crash can be. Until there's been a thorough independent investigation into exactly what happened here, people should avoid jumping to conclusions and simply focus on what can be done for the grieving family.
