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.
