Truck accident in Texas kills two oilfield workers

It is understandable that damages occurring after a trucking accident are typically pretty substantial. A truck accident is certainly a serious matter and can have fatal consequences to both the truck driver and the victims. A recent accident in Texas, involving two semi trucks, sadly resulted in the deaths of both drivers.

The crash occurred in Reeves County earlier this month. Two semi trucks, traveling on a local road collided in the middle of the night. The northbound truck, driven by a 33-year-old male, crossed the center line of traffic and struck the southbound truck, driven by a 41-year-old male. Both drivers were pronounced dead shortly after the incident. It is unknown if either driver was transported to a medical facility for treatment before they died.

According to the Department of Public Safety, both drivers were local oilfield workers; their employers were not listed. At this time, no further details regarding the cause of the crash have been identified. The Highway Patrol are still working on this case.

This is certainly a tragic loss for the families of both drivers. While the driver believed responsible for this crash didn't survive, the victim's family may be entitled to pursue a wrongful death claim against his estate and possibly his employer. If either is found liable for the truck accident, a Texas civil court could award a monetary judgement to the victim's family to provide for their current and future financial losses, such as funeral expenses and loss of income, which may result from the incident.
