18-wheeler accidents: 1 dead in Texas

A man from a neighboring state has been tragically killed in a serious accident, according to state troopers in Midland. Texas authorities say the 22-year-old man was killed in a crash involving a transport truck. 18-wheeler accidents are not uncommon in west Texas, where transport vehicles operate on highways and local roads. Police are still attempting to determine the cause of the crash, which also injured another individual.

Only limited information is available as of this report. However, it has been confirmed that the 22-year-old man was traveling westbound on Interstate 20 near Midland when he turned his pickup truck into the path of an 18-wheeler traveling the same direction. The force of the impact critically injured the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene by arriving medical personnel.

A 23-year-old passenger in the pickup truck sustained injuries described as non-incapacitating. The status of the transport truck's driver was not included in this report. Police have not indicated whether they believe intoxication, recklessness or other driver error were factors in this case, but they have filed no charges against the transport truck driver at this time.

Quite often, 18-wheeler accidents can end in tragedy, especially if one vehicle is considerably smaller than the larger truck. While it is fortunate more deaths did not result from this accident, it remains possible that the injured man could face complications from his injuries that may not be immediately apparent. If this is the case, and if Texas police determine the deceased driver to be at fault for the crash, the injured man could file a personal injury suit against the driver's estate in a civil court. This could extend to other individuals with ownership interest in the involved vehicle as well.
