buses and scooters can't seem to get along
... from the footage they showed the load was snug against the cab... maybe it wasn't flagged properly... who knows

Isn't that the bright yellow flag draped over the seat? Doesn't look like a person looks like the standard dangling safety yellow/orange that is on the back of long loads. Looks like it is in the middle of the load even where it should be. And looks plenty long enough. Looks to me like the driver just wasn't paying attention and ran into a bright colored flag with polls attached.
1) The load was secured and did not move, even after being struck.
2) The load was flagged.
3) It was flagged the wrong color (green instead of red) according to DPS.
Still, DPS said it's ultimately the responsibility of people not to run into vehicles in front of them regardless. No word on if they will cite the truck driver for his flag being the wrong color. Their insurance companies will likely battle but I guarantee you that if police confiscated the SUV driver's phone and they can prove the phone was in use at the time of the wreck, that SUV driver is going to be found at least 90% at fault.
