Without a more thorough investigation, it's impossible to say who was at fault in this accident. However, after litigating hundreds of truck accidents, the details provided by the report leave me wondering. Did the truck have the appropriate lights and reflectors to notify the driver of the passenger car it was turning into the private drive? Was the driver of the BMW speeding? Should the truck have been pulling into the private drive? In order for all involved to find closure, a more thorough, scientific investigation should take place, and all the right questions need answered.
