Authorities said that a previous crash slowed traffic along the interstate. In that traffic, an 18-wheeler crashed into a car and jackknifed, hitting two other vehicles. I can't help noticing at least one source wording the events as saying that the "slowed traffic in the area caused" the truck driver to hit the car (emphasis mine).

Does traffic really cause a crash? Or is it someone's inability to slow down in time to avoid it? Surely there were plenty of other drivers around that had no issues slowing down. So what was different about this truck driver? There could be extenuating circumstances they couldn't control, but experience tells me more thorough investigations would likely show that the traffic wasn't anywhere close to the real reason the truck didn't slow down in time.
