Commentary

Well, the report seems to have already decided who was at fault in the accident. My concern here is that I know from the hundreds of truck accident cases I have seen, the details in preliminary media reports is often erroneous. Mostly, they are farming their information from the outcome of police reports. Without criticizing the good work done by law enforcement, often times police departments are woefully underfunded, leading to inexperienced officers with few resources left to investigate accident scenes. Also, police officials are not searching for fault in an accident, they are trying to find out if there was a crime committed. To pass judgement without the benefit of a third-party, subjective investigation, we do a great disservice to all those involved.
