Houston, TX (May 22, 2023) - On Monday morning, May 22, a driver was hurt after their vehicle was caught underneath a tractor-trailer in the Houston area.
The accident occurred on Interstate 69 near Crosstimbers Street at around 1:30 a.m. The driver of a Jaguar was driving near an 18-wheeler when the vehicle became trapped underneath the rig. The Jaguar was reportedly dragged for a distance before both vehicles came to a stop.
Emergency responders were dispatched to the scene and were scene rendering aid to the driver. No additional information has been provided at this time.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the accident is in progress.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
Commercial trucks like semi-trucks and tractor-trailers are necessary for the American economy to run and operate. However, accidents involving large commercial rigs are known to result in severe injuries for the drivers and occupants of smaller passenger vehicles. Semi-trucks frequently transport hazardous materials throughout the country, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reports that 5,237 truck crashes last year resulted in fatalities. Another 119,000 collisions were serious enough to result in injuries.
Professional truck drivers have a requirement to complete specialized safety training and obey stringent traffic rules, and standards are in place to ensure a minimal degree of safety for the driver and the trucking company. Unfortunately, shortcuts are used by businesses and drivers alike to increase profits, even at the risk of endangering the lives of other drivers.
Sometimes a commercial driver keeps driving after authorized working hours due to the need to meet strict deadlines, which might lead to the fatigued operation of a big rig. Tractor-trailer collisions can occur when a truck driver disobeys the traffic laws that all drivers are required to follow, or they can occur when the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are broken.
