It is not clear what caused the dump truck to cross the center line.  Hopefully, NC State Highway Patrol officers will secure the driver’s log to determine if he had been on the road too long and that he was fatigued.  Other important considerations would include whether the driver was operating a cell phone or possibly texting when the accident occurred.  Hopefully, these questions will be answered as well.
