Henderson, TX (March 24, 2023) - On Thursday, March 23, one person was killed, and another was hurt after a crash involving an oil tanker in the Henderson area. 

The deadly accident took place at the intersection of US-259 and Farm to Market Road 850 early that morning. It was reported that an oil tanker was headed southbound as a pickup truck traveled east on FM 850. The driver of the pickup did not stop at a stop sign and crashed into the rear of the tanker. 

The impact caused the truck to spin out before coming to a rest in the grass. The driver of the pickup sustained fatal injuries. 

The operator of the oil tanker was transported to a hospital in Tyler for treatment. The identities of the involved parties have been withheld. 

An ongoing crash investigation is in progress. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.

Deadly Trucking Accidents in Texas

Henderson, TX - One Killed, One Hurt in Crash with Oil Tanker at US-259 & FM 850The majority of fatalities in crashes between commercial vehicles and passenger cars involve those traveling in passenger cars. Because a car is so much smaller than a big rig, the people inside usually take the worst of a crash. One of the variations between car accidents is size. Compared to a vehicle or pickup truck, big trucks might easily weigh 20 to 30 times more. In a collision at highway speeds, the passenger automobile was completely destroyed due to its size and greater ground clearance parameters.

Over the course of our lives, we all encounter many different kinds of difficulties. The unexpected death of a family member caused by the careless, reckless, or purposeful actions of another person may be the most terrible situation overall. In some cases, the surviving family may be able to file what is known as a Texas wrongful death claim.
