Very few details about this semi truck crash have been released. There has been no word on the cause of the crash, We can speculate that it was fatique related due to the nature of the wreck but that is only speculation.  It is still under investigation by law enforcement. As we have discussed before the details are particularly important in these cases.  Since there are additional rules and regulations associated with the commercial trucking industry, these investigations are often lengthy and complicated. It’s important to have a lawyer with proven commercial trucking case experience on your side after a truck accident.

The team at Holzer-Edwards, Chartered sends their deepest condolences to Horne’s family members and friends and wishes a swift and full recovery for Justin Whitlock.
