It appears that 49-year-old Brandy Hartley was a passenger in the Jeep while 51-year-old Jonathan McCord was the driver. From oncoming lanes, it appears the 18-wheeler's trailer somehow "crossed over the center line," resulting in a collision with McCord's Jeep. Due to the collision, both Hartley and McCord were taken to the hospital.

Reports did not say anything else beyond noting that Mr. McCord was arrested for charges which seemed to be unrelated to the wreck. It's not my place to comment at all about those allegations. But it stands out to me news outlets are all too willing to put that information out to the public, but they don't at all address how an 18-wheeler's trailer managed to swing out over the center line. Were there no noteworthy mistakes that led to that? Were there no appropriate charges to file for that? Did news outlets leave out information, or did authorities never discuss those factors in the first place?

I just can't help feeling like these reports are leaving out a whole lot of important information relating to the crash itself.
