Posts tagged "18-Wheeler Accidents"

Texas 18-wheeler accidents often leave unanswered questions

When a collision occurs on a Texas highway or roadway in another state, it is not always immediately apparent what or who may have caused it. In fact, in many cases, such as 18-wheeler accidents, there are often more questions than answers until investigators are dispatched to an accident scene to do their job. Sometimes, it takes them weeks, even months, to determine the exact cause of a particular incident.

18-wheeler accidents reveal unlikely heros

People driving through the great state of Texas are surely familiar with the possibility that tractor-trailer trucks may be in close proximity to smaller passenger vehicles in traffic. These large trucks are used to move goods all over the United States, and are usually not a problem for other drivers. Unfortunately, 18-wheeler accidents sometimes occur, and when they do, the results can cause severe injuries to victims, and lots of damage to property. 

Aggressive driving could cause 18-wheeler accidents

According to estimates by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a significant number of lives are lost nationwide, including Texas, as the result of aggressive driving by commercial vehicle operators. The sheer size and weight difference between cars and big rigs limits the chances of car occupants escaping severe injuries or worse during an accident. It is not uncommon for 18-wheeler accidents to be fatal.

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.

18-wheeler accidents can be catastrophic

There is no doubt that automobile vs. big rig crashes typically leave motorists with catastrophic injuries -- or worse. This results from the fact that 18-wheeler accidents put vehicles weighing over 80,000 pounds against cars with average weights of around 4,000 pounds. While many such accidents involve negligent truckers, motorists driving passenger cars can take precautions when they share the Texas roadways with commercial vehicles.

18-wheeler accidents may signal death to drivers and others

It is somewhat unusual for 18-wheelers to collide head-on in a fatal crash on a Texas interstate highway. However, 18-wheeler accidents can occur in any variety of scenarios so that it is not a totally unexpected occurrence. In the early evening of Thursday, Nov. 9, a horrific tragedy of that kind occurred when an 18-wheeler going southbound on I-35 crossed the median and struck another 18-wheeler that was traveling northbound near Exit 126. They collided head-on, leaving both drivers dead at the scene.
