Charles Moore, 38, of Frankfort, Kentucky lost his life when the pickup truck he was driving collided with a large recycling truck on Interstate 64 near the 35 mile marker. Details are scarce right now, but the investigating agency says that the pickup rear ended the recycling truck, which had slowed down.
While a rear end collision is almost always automatically assumed to be the fault of the driver of the vehicle at the rear of the wreck, it is important not to jump to conclusions. There are myriad other potential contributing factors or causes that must be explored, especially when the crash results in a loss of life. The friends and family of Mr. Moore will surely be looking for answers as to how and why this happened, and the investigating agency should do everything they can to provide them.
