Whether it's for the sake of the person who lost their life, the person sent to the hospital, or the families of the victims looking for answers, jumping to conclusions isn't going to help anyone. Especially with something as potentially challenging as a crash involving two commercial trucks, it's important to let investigators get clear evidence so those involved know they're getting the full story.
