Losing a child is one of the most devastating things that could ever happen to a parent. For one Texas family, this nightmare recently became a reality. The fatal truck accident involved a large gravel hauler, which struck a vehicle in the intersection of a red light. The victim may have been riding with friends.
A terrifying 18-wheeler accident recently sent 10 Texas students to the hospital. The driver who caused the wreck was apparently not injured. While serious injuries are not uncommon with these types of truck accidents, victims apparently only suffered minor injuries. However, this does not mean that they will not have potentially time-consuming or costly recoveries.
Driving next to an 18-wheeler on the interstate can be an extremely uncomfortable situation, but most people expect that trucking companies take every precaution when it comes to their trucks and drivers. Unfortunately, this is not necessarily the case. Truck drivers often operate vehicles while fatigued, putting other motorists in Texas at risk for serious -- and fatal -- truck accidents.
