In Texas, a recent truck accident resulted in the tragic loss of four lives. A police investigation remains ongoing at this time.
Texas maintenance crews who work alongside moving traffic face a certain amount of personal risk and danger on the job. However, each worker has the right to reasonably assume that motorists will operate their vehicles according to traffic laws and with focus on caution and safety at all times. Unfortunately, roadside workers are sometimes injured or, as in a recent tragic case, killed when a motorist is negligent or reckless. The recent truck accident occurred at the edge of Highway 146.
The Texas Department of Public Safety has conducted a preliminary investigation into an accident that occurred on a recent Sunday. The fatal collision involved a tractor-trailer and an automobile. Sadly, the truck accident resulted in the deaths of three people.
A recent article discussed an apparent disconnect between highway speed limits and vehicle safety standards. Many roads, including some in Texas, have newer speed limits that are said to be higher than the tires on some vehicles, especially tractor-trailer trucks, are designed to withstand. Safety advocates have stated that when a vehicle travels at a speed higher than its tires are designed to handle, it can become a recipe for catastrophe.
Texas Department of Public Safety officials reported that lanes headed in both directions were closed to traffic after a tragic accident occurred on Interstate 35.

One never knows what one will see while navigating the nation's highways during a usual daily commute to work.

Highway 79 was closed due to the recent fiery collision.
Suffering serious burns or damages in a truck accident cannot only cause respiratory complications but can also require lengthy and expensive medical care to recover from the painful experience. When a driver suffers burn trauma as a result of an accident potentially caused by another person, they may feel a mixture of anger and confusion. A recent afternoon truck accident in Texas resulted in the death of one man and serious injury to another.
Operating a semi or an 18-wheeler can require training and heightened alertness when sharing the highway with other large trucks and smaller vehicles. When a driver is not equipped or able to come to a quick stop or maneuver their rig properly, a catastrophic accident may result. A Texas Interstate was recently closed after a devastating semi crash claimed the lives of two people involved.
