Fatal truck accidents can often lead to lawsuits filed by the deceased's loved ones. This may be the case coming up with the family of one 24-year-old Texas man, who was killed earlier this year in a truck accident after a truck driver allegedly crashed into the man's car. The man's parents are filing a wrongful death suit against the truck driver, as well as the trucking company who employed the driver.
Texas' recent economic success has contributed to an increase in truck accidents in the state. An accident on Texas 16 near FM 624 left one truck driver killed. The truck accident occurred when a tanker truck did not yield the right of way and crashed into another tanker, killing its driver. The other driver was released from the hospital with injuries.
A Texas driver may be facing a criminal negligent homicide charge after a multi-vehicle accident which left one man dead. The truck accident occurred on Highway 7 when the driver did not stop in an active construction zone. His 18-wheeler hit one of four cars that were stopped, and the domino effect caused a five-car accident. The driver of the first stopped car died instantly after crashing into an arrow board. Six people were injured, including a flagger on site. The jury will have to decide if the driver of the 18-wheeler is responsible for the death of the other driver.
