Wallisville, TX (September 13, 2023) - There was a fatality reported after a multi-vehicle collision outside of Wallisville on Saturday, September 9.
The deadly accident took place on Interstate 10 near mile marker 806 at the Trinity River Bridge that afternoon at around 1:20 p.m. It was reported that a construction front-loader was headed eastbound on the highway in Chambers County while being followed by another vehicle with hazard lights engaged. It was then that a semi-truck headed in the same direction crashed into the rear of the other vehicle and front-loader.
A passenger in the vehicle following the front loader suffered fatal injuries and was later pronounced dead. At this time, the identities of the involved parties have been withheld.
No further information has been provided at this time.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the deadly accident is in the hands of local law enforcement officials.
We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Driving in Texas can be challenging, and this is even more true when a commercial truck is on the road. Unfortunately, the state has the highest number of trucking fatalities in the country. The majority of the cargo is moved by truck, and Texas plays a significant role in the movement of goods across the country. On any given day, there are more than 2 million trucks on American roads, and there are more than 15,000 semi-truck crashes that take place annually in the state of Texas. These crashes resulted in 2,000 injuries and an estimated 300 fatal trucking accidents. This translates to almost one injury for every seven collisions and one fatality for every 50 collisions.
Your life can be changed forever when you lose someone in a trucking accident. Truck drivers are often pressured to be on the road for long hours in order to meet tight deadlines set by transportation companies. Despite national regulations about how long a rig can drive at a time, many truckers take reckless actions in order to perform their jobs. This can sometimes result in unexpected and catastrophic collisions.
It is a sad fact that crashes involving a semi-truck are some of the most catastrophic, and those traveling in smaller passenger cars are the most at risk. You need to do everything in your power to pursue full and fair compensation if you or a loved one was involved in a trucking accident. Wrongful death claims are some of the most complicated types of civil torts, and you need a trained legal team that can stand by your side to make sure your case is handled fairly.
