After deadly truck wrecks like this, I almost always start by saying there needs to be thorough investigations from experienced accident reconstructionists. People sometimes think I say that to accuse police of being wrong. That's not at all why I do it, so it's important to clear up why this approach is so important.

To put it simply, a deadly wreck is almost always complex. One involving two large vehicles and their trailers crashing head-on is only going to create a more chaotic crash scene. Without enough time and the right tools, investigations can easily miss something important. Whether that's something like the speeds of the vehicles, issues with maintenance, a mechanical defect like a faulty airbag, or even something like poor road conditions, that's information victims and families need.

I've had independent accident reconstructionists look into all kinds of wrecks. Sometimes, they simply confirm what police already know. Other times, they catch something important authorities overlooked. So regardless of what happened here, I don't see any reason to take the situation lightly. There are families out there that deserve answers, and there's just no good reason not to get them those answers as soon as possible.
