Allegedly, the driver of the car was traveling south and failed to maintain the vehicle in the proper lane. As a result, the car moved into the northbound lane and crashed head on with a tractor trailer. Another 18-wheeler attempted to avoid the initial collision, and as a result, that truck traveled into the ditch and turned over.
The car had three occupants: the driver, a 4-year-old boy, and a 6-year-old girl. The boy had to be transported from the scene by helicopter due to critical injuries, and the little girl did not suffer any injuries. The driver of the tractor trailer involved in the initial crash was also uninjured. However, the driver of the second truck was airlifted from the scene.
When a roadway does not have a physical median to separate traffic traveling in different directions, a head-on collision could easily occur. If a driver drifts into the other lane, a split second is enough time for an accident to take place. When a crash involves an 18 wheeler, typically significant damage and injuries results from Truck Accidents.
These types of situation occur frequently on Texas roads. As this situation shows, a truck accident can happen in the blink of an eye. Because the incident resulted in serious injuries, the driver deemed responsible could potentially face legal repercussions. The injured truck driver may have cause to file a Personal Injury claim that, if successful, could result in his being awarded compensation for medical bills and other damages resulting from the accident that Texas law deem appropriate.
