Houston, TX - One Injured after Semi-Truck Crashes on Eastex Fwy

Houston, TX (September 11, 2023) - One person was hospitalized after an 18-wheeler crashed on a Houston Highway on Saturday, September 9. 

The accident took place on Eastex Freeway near Lauder Road early that morning. It was reported that a semi-truck collided with a Toyota Camry, and the impact caused the tandem trailer of the 18-wheeler to hang over the side of US-59. 

The driver of the Toyota was transported to a hospital in Kingwood for treatment of sustained injuries. Local sources indicated that water was on the road and may have been a factor in the collision. 

The area was temporarily closed while emergency crews were present. It was later reopened to outside traffic. 

No further information on the crash has been provided at this time. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the accident is in the hands of local law enforcement officials. More information will be provided as it continues. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for a full recovery. 

Truck Accidents in Texas

Houston, TX - One Injured after Semi-Truck Crashes on Eastex Fwy

A crash involving a large commercial rig can be completely devastating, and it is unfortunate that those traveling in smaller passenger cars are at greater risk of suffering serious injuries. The number of trucking accidents that take place in Texas is shockingly high. In fact, the state is home to almost 10 percent of all reported semi-truck accidents that take place across the country. There were 6,740 18-wheeler collisions reported in the state in 2022 alone. Statistics show that every 15,000 trucking accidents result in close to 2,000 injuries and 300 fatalities.

When you are traveling on a Texas highway, there is a strong chance that you will share the road with a large truck. This is because the state plays a key role in the American transportation system, and the state’s highways are important in bringing goods from coast to coast. If you are involved in a crash with a large semi-truck, you need to be prepared for a long fight and recovery. These trucking companies will have extensive and often complicated insurance coverage policies, and they often have teams of lawyers to handle any potential personal injury claims made against their fleets. You need to level the playing field by hiring a qualified Texas semi-truck accident lawyer to represent your case and make sure you are able to get the compensation you need.
