People don't often realize all of the challenges that commercial truck drivers have to overcome on a near daily basis. There are many things like mechanical issues, tire failures, cargo shifts, poorly maintained roads, pushy or negligent employers, and other such factors that truckers have to deal with which the rest of us may never encounter in our lives.
Yet too often, people see crashes like this and immediately assume the truck driver did something wrong. Is that possible? Of course, but there's no reason to jump to conclusions before all the facts are clear. That's why it's important to ensure there are thorough investigations that leave nothing to question. Considering these current details are far from thorough, my hope is authorities were able to get answers behind the scenes, if at all.
