Rubio-Goncales sustained fatal injuries in the crash. No one else was said to be involved. Right now, details are still under investigation.

The risk of mechanical issues with commercial trucks is a problem I don't see enough people talking about. There are all kinds of things that can go wrong which typical people rarely encounter. Yet many are quick to assume there was no mechanical failure or that any issue must have been due to maintenance issues. Those are obviously possibilities worth considering, but it would help out a lot of people out there to understand why more experienced investigators are prudent enough to consider even unlikely possibilities. That should be especially true when someone loses their life.
