Police are investigating a car accident that got crushed by an 18 wheeler and led to one death near the League City, TX area. The accident took place in Pasadena on Highway 225. 18 wheeler accidents have been on the rise within Texas and this is just another example of how dangerous it is to share a road with these commercial trucks.
Plastic Containers blew out of a small pickup truck and caused the female driver of car to slow down. Unfortunately, the semi-tractor trailer who was driving behind the female driver did not see the women slowing down to avoid the containers on the road. Because the truck driver did not see women breaking his truck slammed into the female’s car and rolled on top of it crushing and killing her. The female driver was pronounced dead at the scene of this tragic accident.
The incident is still under investigation by police and it is not known at this time if charges will be filed in this fatal auto accident. While these types of accidents are always unfortunate in this sad situation the truck driver was not unharmed from this event. The 18 Wheeler driver suffered several injuries, with the drivers right arm specifically being mentioned. The truck driver’s injuries were treated at a local hospital and he was released.
While this 18 wheeler was somewhat of a freak accident, these types of car accidents occur quite often on the Texas roadways. With the increase of big rig trucks its only common sense that these unfortunate accidents will continue to occur. An accident of this nature brings about several legal questions that can become quite complex. The female driver’s estate is likely to have the option taking legal action against the truck driver, personally, and the driver’s company for the negligence of their employee.
