Commentary

As is often the case, early media reports provided few details regarding this accident. I'm curious to find out if the truck had all the appropriate safety features--working turn signals, LED lights, etc.--necessary to help prevent accidents such as these. Without knowing the outcome of a more thorough, in-depth investigation, there's no way of saying who was at fault at this time.
