Fatal Tractor-Trailer Crashes in Texas

Yarrelton, TX - Passenger Killed in Head-On Crash with Tractor-Trailer on FM 485Texas is a state where car accidents can happen at any time, and on its roadways that year, there were no days without a fatality. Despite the fact that not all truck accidents involve huge 18-wheelers, fatalities frequently arise from the size and weight disparity between large trucks and passenger automobiles, which weigh just 3,000 to 5,000 pounds on average. In 2010, there were 284 fatal truck accidents in Texas. If a loved one was killed in a semi-truck crash, contact a qualified attorney as soon as possible.
