Is that all the attention this crash is going to get? People tend to take for granted that authorities give crashes thorough attention and get clear answers. They often do, and I hope the same proves true here, as well. But with commercial vehicle wrecks, things can be incredibly challenging if officers aren't given the right tools or enough time to properly investigate the crash. That's when important information slips through the cracks.
Regardless of what happened here, there's a family out there that deserves answers. Hopefully the proper steps are being taken here to get them those answers as soon as possible.
