As a result of the collision, Klozik sustained incapacitating injuries. No one else seemed to be hurt. While police mention fog as a factor in the crash, they claim that the truck turned when unsafe, leading to the crash. I am glad to see them make that distinction considering how serious this crash was.

Folks would be shocked to see how often there were crashes like this one where an officer, due to lack of time or training or care, just blamed the whole thing on the weather. Fog, snow, rain—those are obviously significant factors. But it's almost always a driver's behavior in that weather, rather than the weather itself, that leads to a serious accident.

Fortunately, authorities seem to believe they have a clear picture of what led to this crash, and that's a positive step forward for victims and families. My hope is this is a sign authorities were able to continue their investigations into why this truck driver thought it was safe to make the turn—or whether they were even considering safety at all.
