Anthony, TX (November 15, 2023) - There were confirmed injuries after a crash involving an 18-wheeler in the Anthony area on Sunday, November 12. The accident was reported on Interstate 10 EB at around 11:26 a.m. A semi-truck was traveling on the interstate when the vehicle jackknifed. All lanes were closed as emergency responders were at the scene.
Traffic was directed to S. Desert Boulevard as emergency units were present. At this time, the severity and number of resulting injuries have not been provided at this time. The area was later reopened after the resulting wreckage was cleared by responding tow trucks. No further information on the crash is currently available. An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is in the hands of local authorities, 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.
According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there are more than 57,000 commercial truck accidents in the United States annually. Large semi-trucks and eighteen-wheelers are involved in many of these crashes. Over 6,700 collisions involving semi-trucks occurred in Texas in 2022, accounting for over 10 percent of all truck collisions reported in the country. Every year, commercial trucks travel more than 31 billion miles across Texas.
It can be hard enough to drive a vehicle in the state of Texas, but it can be even more nerve-wracking having to share the road with large commercial vehicles. These massive rigs can cause complete devastation in the event of a crash, and statistics show that those traveling in smaller passenger cars are more likely to suffer the brunt of these injuries. You need to be sure that you are able to protect your legal rights if you or someone close to you is hurt in an 18-wheeler crash. This usually means partnering with a skilled attorney who can help you navigate the claims process and ensure that you are able to get a full recovery.
Personal injury claims be complicated, and those involving 18-wheelers are even more so. There are many different parties involved. You are not only dealing with the truck driver operating the rig. You are also potentially going up against a large trucking company and a third-party parts manufacturer. An experienced lawyer who has handled these types of cases can help you determine who is responsible for your injuries and other damages.
