Loyola was flown to a hospital with unspecified injuries. No one else was said to be involved. At this time, authorities say only they do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved. Investigations are ongoing.

Seeing police say intoxication wasn't a factor is no doubt due to them looking into it after just about any crash. But it helps to show an unfortunate reality that the first things people want to know after a single-vehicle wreck is if the driver did something wrong. I've seen all kinds of factors cause a truck to lose control which the average driver doesn't have to deal with. Tire blowouts, employers neglecting maintenance or forcing drivers to engage in reckless behavior, medical conditions, load shifts, other reckless vehicles running them off the road, etc.

I certainly can't say what did or didn't happen here, and I obviously recognize it's possible for a driver to make a mistake that leads to a crash. But if authorities aren't being thorough beyond simply looking into intoxication, are they really giving this crash the attention it deserves?
