Beyond this, there are no clear details, especially things like the speeds of the vehicles, the directions, who had the right-of-way, and details about seatbelts and airbags and if they functioned properly. That's not exactly unusual after a complex truck wreck, but folks shouldn't just assume authorities are working hard behind the scenes to get answers.

It would surprise people to see how often I talked with people who weeks and months after an accident still don't know more than what was initially reported in the news. As hard-working and skilled as officers tend to be, their departments don't always prioritize accident reconstruction, meaning important details slip through the cracks. Hopefully the Kern County or State Police here have been able to dedicate the time and effort necessary for a serious truck wreck. I'd hate to think this man's loved ones are still left search for answers.
