One Killed in Truck Accident on Silver Memorial Bridge in Mason County, WV

According to statements in local media, a semi-truck was going "full speed" when it crashed into a passenger vehicle. One person from that vehicle died as a result of the collision. It's unclear if anyone else was hurt.

Beyond this, no information is available at this time. What is public, however, is already concerning enough. I often talk on this blog about how saying someone "crashed into" another vehicle is not saying they're at fault or that they did anything wrong. However, I don't urge the caution to deny that these situations are often due to things like driver distraction, speeding, following too closely, fatigue, and other factors drivers can avoid.

So what was it here? Was this a truck driver failing to slow for traffic? Was it a vehicle cutting off the truck? Was it mechanical issues or faulty brakes? Is there some other driver involved that police haven't looked into enough? Likely or not, getting answers for the victim's loved ones will no doubt mean turning over every stone to get the facts.
