Truck crashes are not the same as big car accidents.  Very specific safety regulations apply to trucking accidents.

Key evidence may disappear quickly.  Electronically stored evidence may be gone in as little as two weeks.  The specific equipment, design or loading of a big rig or tractor trailer may be contributing factors.  There are others.  Investigation is very different.
