Abilene, TX - Semi-Truck Blows Tire in Injury Crash on I-20

Abiline, TX (September 19, 2023) - On Friday, September 15, there were injuries after a pileup crash involving an 18-wheeler in the Abilene area. 

The crash took place on Interstate 20 in Callahan County near the Taylor County Line at around 12:49 p.m. A semi-truck was traveling on the highway when the rig experienced a blowout. The vehicle hit a cable that divided the east and westbound lanes of the highway and carried the cable down the road. The vehicles that were in the path of the cable sustained significant damage. 

All lanes were closed due to the resulting wreckage, and traffic was at a complete standstill for several hours. The severity and number of resulting injuries have not been determined at this time. 

No further information on the accident has been provided at this time. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is in progress, and more information will be provided as it continues. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

18-Wheeler Crashes in Texas

Abilene, TX - Semi-Truck Blows Tire in Injury Crash on I-20

It may be surprising, but large trucks carry the majority of the cargo across the United States. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has already reported 57,000 trucking accidents this year. Texas plays an important role in the nation's transportation network, and large commercial vehicles frequently transfer cargo across the state's major roadways. Sadly, this has led to a rise in the likelihood of fatal trucking accidents in the Lone Star State. Texas is the site of about 10 percent of all fatal trucking accidents in the United States. There were 6,740 heavy truck crashes reported across the state in 2022 alone. 

It is an unfortunate reality that semi-truck crashes happen daily across the state of Texas. The injuries that result from these collisions can be devastating. These collisions can cost victims tens of thousands of dollars, and most are not prepared to deal with these extravagant costs. Crash victims should not be held financially responsible for the reckless actions of a driver or a third-party part manufacturer. In many cases, third parties are involved in trucking accidents, and you need a lawyer who can prove who is liable for your injuries and other damages after a significant collision. 

If you do not hire a trained Texas truck accident lawyer, you may find yourself unable to make the recovery necessary in order to get back to your way of life. You should never leave your recovery to chance. You should always consult a trained personal injury lawyer to make sure that you are able to get the compensation you need and deserve.
