The fatal accident took place on Interstate 35 WB near Meacham Boulevard at around 1 p.m. A gravel truck reportedly overturned on the interstate and was involved in a crash with another vehicle. The impact caused the car to break apart, and pieces of debris hit other vehicles on the road.
At least one person was killed in the accident. It is unknown how many vehicles were involved and how many others were injured.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the deadly semi-truck crash is in progress.
We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Tractor-trailers, semi-tractor-trailers, and other commercial trucks are involved in a significant number of traffic incidents each year in Texas. The majority of truck accidents in Texas happen on highways and interstates. Texas heavy truck crashes resulted in 649 fatalities in 2017, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Large Truck and Bus Crash Statistics annual report. The 649 fatalities were the most in any year since 2007 and the highest total. Texas had the highest number of fatal crashes involving large trucks in 2017, with 556, followed by 103 single-vehicle fatal crashes and 453 multiple-vehicle crashes involving large trucks.
Whenever a close relative passes away as a result of someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or wrongful behavior, certain people may file wrongful death claims in court. You can think of it like this: If the deceased person were still alive, they would have been entitled to file a personal injury claim and ask for damages for their injuries. This enables those who were left behind to defend their rights.
At first, you might not feel at ease turning the passing of a loved one into a legal process. Before determining whether to file a wrongful death lawsuit or not, we advise speaking with a lawyer. You might be able to proceed with the aid of a justly owed wrongful death settlement.
