Due to the crash, the Conroe man had incapacitating injuries. It's unclear if the other driver was hurt. In their investigations, authorities say they found the Mack truck's brakes to be defective.

This final detail needs to be clarified by authorities, at least to those involved here if not publicly. Saying brakes were defective could mean that they were poorly maintained or misused, which generally means the truck driver or their employer is responsible for a resulting collision.

But it could also mean that there was some kind of manufacturing issue the truck driver couldn't have known about. Perhaps most concerning is that situation could mean there is a widespread problem putting other truck drivers and those around them in serious danger.

So what exactly made these brakes "defective," and are authorities continuing to address the issue properly?
