It's obvious investigators need to look into why this crash happened. But something they may overlook is whether or not the crash even needed to be fatal to begin with. Anytime I see a commercial truck catch fire, I can't help wondering if investigators are looking into the possibility of a defect that many trucks have concerning where the manufacturer placed the fuel tanks. It's entirely possible the fire here was a reasonable result of the crash due to its severity. But with a victim's family out there in need of answers, it's worth considering any possibility that could shed light on what led to this awful event.
