Commentary

Whenever single-vehicle truck accidents happen, the knee-jerk tendency is to blame the driver. Unfortunately, in a fair number of these crashes, the driver's injured as a result of something outside of their control. Factors such as untenable work schedules, lack of proper vehicle maintenance, manufacturing defects, and even trailers loaded improperly may lead to these accidents.

Considering the time the incident happened, is it unreasonable to imagine the driver was at the end of a grueling overnight haul? I don't think so. Without a more thorough, independent investigation, we can't say for sure. Hopefully, a more subjective investigation into the accident will eliminate any doubt.
