Commentary on Richard William Wellman Truck Accident in Culberson County

This is certainly a chaotic series of events described here, but there are still so many details not mentioned. How fast were the vehicles going? What condition was the victim's vehicle in? Why did it leave the road prior to hitting the truck--if it even did? Did the 18-wheeler contribute to this in any way, or was it just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Could it be there's more to this story authorities aren't considering?

At the end of the day, the victim isn't around to tell his side of the story. In my experience, that makes it so much more crucial for victims' loved ones to see they're getting all the facts. Maybe police were thorough here, and further investigations would only provide some confirmation of that. Otherwise, though, if there's more to this story, those involved deserve to know.
