Texas multi-vehicle crash believed to be caused by trucker error

Every day along Texas freeways, there is the risk of getting caught up in a serious car accident. While the majority of motorists make every effort to operate their vehicles conscientiously, other drivers do not take the same care and consideration. A recent multi-car accident left one woman with serious injuries and seems to have been caused by a trucker error.

The wreck occurred along Interstate 10 and reportedly involved nine vehicles. The report indicated that several vehicles had come to a stop due to a back-up along the interstate. A man driving a tractor-trailer that was approaching in the same lane apparently failed to notice the slowdown. He did not adjust his speed in order to avoid a collision. His commercial vehicle then slammed into the rear of a small SUV that was one of the cars that had stopped due to traffic conditions.

That vehicle was then shoved into the ones in front of it. Those cars then hit the ones directly in front of them and eventually struck two other automobiles that were in the parallel lane. The driver in the SUV was seriously injured. She was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Two other people also required medical care for less serious injuries.

Texas officials have not completed their investigation but have stated that it appears the wreck was due to trucker error as s result of his failure to control the speed of his rig. No other details were provided regarding the condition of the victims or whether the trucker will face criminal charges. The woman who was seriously hurt may have a long recovery in the weeks ahead and may have added pressure from mounting monetary damages that may have resulted from this collision. Victims in these circumstances may decide to seek relief from those financial losses by pursuing a personal injury lawsuit in civil court against the party or parties deemed responsible.
