Martin County, TX -- December 20, 2022, Brandon Robert Morrow was killed after an accident where his vehicle and an 18-wheeler crashed.

Initial details about the crash indicated that it happened at around 6:00 a.m. along I-20 near mile marker 163. Public details currently available from authorities say that 33-year-old Brandon Robert Morrow was in a Chevy Silverado traveling eastbound along the interstate.

If the information provided at this time proves to be accurate, then it’s difficult to understand why this isn’t a bigger deal in the press. I certainly don't have any inside information on this crash, but based on the information that’s already publicly available, shouldn’t more people be talking about this?

If a truck driver just pulls into the path of a driver and kills him, you’d figure some reporter would care enough to at least write a few words about the incident and the victims. Yet details about this devastating crash are scarce. That public pressure can be vital in these situations because it can indicate whether or not authorities are looking at any possible criminal charges. As best I can tell, the only punishment the driver who allegedly caused this fatal crash faces is a ticket that might cost him $100. That doesn’t strike me as a fitting punishment when a mistake costs someone else his life.

For now, I’m going to stop there. The idea that someone may have accidentally killed another man and appears to be walking away with only a $100 fine causes me to think a lot of things that aren’t fit to print.
