According to current statements, a truck driver was standing along the shoulder of southbound interstate lanes of travel. While there, authorities say that another semi-truck tried to change lanes, apparently striking the mirror of another semi in the far right lane. Somehow, reports say the trailer of the truck in the right lane hit the trucker standing on the shoulder. As a result, that driver sustained fatal injuries.

I have yet to see authorities make any other public statements on this fatal crash. Frankly, it can be disheartening when people accuse me of being anti-trucker just because I'm a lawyer. Yet here we have a truck driver allegedly killed due to some other driver who somehow managed to crash while changing lanes, and I can't find a single update on what happened, who's responsible, and whether or not there are going to be consequences for a man losing his life. Are authorities doing anything behind the scenes to ensure this man's loved ones are getting answers, or are they as in the dark as the rest of us?
