Commentary

It appears the news outlets seem to have made up their minds about what occurred less than a day after this accident. As is the norm, they seem to side with the driver of the semi-truck. I'm not implying the driver of the truck was definitely at fault, but that's the point. There's no way for anyone, myself or news media alike, to know who was at fault until the outcome of a more thorough investigation.
