It's truly heart-wrenching to see when hard working truck drivers go so far from home to provide for their loved ones only for something to go horribly wrong and prevent them from making it back. I've seen crashes like this happen for just about any reason one could think of, from medical emergencies to cargo shifts to tire blowouts to other reckless drivers forcing trucks off the road.

Yet a lot of people may read the news and see only one vehicle was supposedly involved here, and that will be enough for them to just blame the victim and move on. Obviously, I wouldn't deny that things like distracted driving and speeding often cause serious accidents. But it would also be irresponsible—not to mention disrespectful—to just blame someone without knowing anything beyond a measly news report that barely says anything of substance.

So when I read these details, one very crucial question comes to my mind: Are the victim's loved ones getting the answers they deserve?
