Goodlet, TX – Three Killed in Semi-Truck Collision on US-287

Goodlet, TX (March 16, 2023) – A crash on Sunday, March 12, in the Goodlet area left three people dead. 

The fatal accident was reported on US-287 at around 3:18 a.m. in Hardeman County. It was reported that a semi-truck collided with a pickup truck on the highway. It was later revealed that the 23-year-old Lubbock man driving the pickup failed to yield to the semi and was hit directly. 

The pickup came to a rest in the median, and the semi ran into a nearby ditch. The semi-truck then caught fire, and the two Florida men inside were unable to escape. Both were pronounced dead at the scene. 

The driver of the pickup was transported to a local hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries. The identities of the deceased parties have been withheld. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the fatal accident is in progress. 

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time.

Fatal Semi-Truck Accidents in Texas

Goodlet, TX - Three Killed in Semi-Truck Collision on US-287In Texas, a car accident can occur at any moment, and statistics show that there were no days without a fatality on Texas roadways in 2011. Trucks are not involved in every collision, but because of the size difference between huge trucks and passenger cars, which weigh only 3,000 to 5,000 pounds on average, fatalities in truck accidents are extremely common. In 2010, there were 284 fatal truck accidents in Texas. Both semi-trailer combos and truck-trailer combinations were involved in these collisions.

Texas wrongful death lawyers are aware that every person or any company that participated in a person’s death as a result of negligence or improper behavior is liable in court. If someone is intentionally killed or dies in an accident that was the defendant’s fault, they may be held legally culpable for any resulting damages.
