Commentary

While it's too early in the investigation to say what occurred, one thing that stands out to me is the time of the collision. It's shortly before 3:30 a.m. What are the chances the driver of the truck was nearing the end of an overnight haul? Considering the strict deadline expected by trucking companies, accidents related to truck driver fatigue are not unheard of.

Again, it's far too early to say what led to this man's death. We will have to await the outcome of a more thorough, independent investigation before we know all the facts.
