Texas tragedy occurs when tractor-trailer exits parking lot

A response crew worked for nine hours removing glue and wreckage from a recent Texas accident scene. Involved in the collision was a pickup truck and a tractor-trailer. The highway was shut down in all directions while crews worked in the aftermath of the crash.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the huge semi was hauling glue. A 39-year-old woman who was driving a pickup truck was reported to be headed southbound on the highway. Her vehicle was apparently struck by the big rig as the larger vehicle attempted a left turn, exiting the parking lot of a truck stop.

A trooper who issued an official statement on the accident said that the crash occurred close to 6 a.m. on a recent Monday. The driver of the 18-wheeler was not injured in the accident. Sadly, the woman in the pickup truck was pronounced dead on the scene.

In the state of Texas, those injured in a tractor-trailer or other vehicular collision that is believed to be caused by the negligence of another driver may file a personal injury claim in a civil court. When an accident victim does not survive his or her injuries, the victim's immediate family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Consulting an attorney who has experience in dealing with cases involving truck accidents would most likely be beneficial to those considering this type of litigation. Often, the untimely death of a loved one leads to unexpected financial costs that might be incurred through funeral expenses or lost wages (if the victim of the accident was a bread winner for the family). Any compensation awarded by a civil court, based upon appropriate proof of negligence, could possibly help alleviate the financial difficulties which often accompany these tragedies.
