Multi-vehicle accident kills Texas truck driver

Truck accidents can have devastating consequences. It is often the drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles who suffer the most in such accidents. Of course, this is not always the case, especially when one truck collides with another. One such truck accident in Texas resulted in the death of a truck driver from the Dallas area.

The 53-year-old man was driving an 18-wheeler along a highway in Morris County when the accident occurred. According to reports, traffic on the highway was slowed by debris. The victim is said to have begun to steer his truck off the roadway in order to avoid a collision with other vehicles. A second 18-wheeler apparently had the same idea and the two collided, with the first truck crashing into the rear end of the second. A pickup was also involved in the accident, having been struck by the trailer of the second truck.

The 53-year-old died at the scene of the accident. Multiple other individuals sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the crash.

Sadly, truck accidents are not an uncommon occurrence in Texas and the cost associated with them is often high. Any number of factors can contribute to such accidents, from driver fatigue to bad weather conditions to a poorly maintained vehicle.

If you are harmed in a truck accident, you might find yourself wondering how you will cope with your injuries. Medical bills can be high and your recovery may force you to take time off work. However, you might be able to claim compensation for your injuries. An attorney can advise you about your options and look into whether you have a case.
