Trucking negligence: 4-truck pileup on I-35, 1 trucker dead

Rear-end crashes involving a line of cars stopped at a traffic signal are somewhat common events in Texas and nationwide. A pileup of several 18-wheelers in a chain rear-end collision is unusual and rarely seen. It happened recently in Frio County, about five miles south of Pearsall,  on I-35 at about 5:45 p.m. It appears that trucking negligence was in some way or another responsible for the accident.

Multiple-vehicle truck accidents often require forensic analysis

Texas has its share of serious accidents involving trucks. When a truck gets involved in a chain-reaction type of crash, the human carnage can carry a big toll. It is also difficult in some cases to apportion liability among the various participants in truck accidents that involve a chain-reaction scenario.

Truck accidents follow comparative fault rules of liability

Texas highways are riddled with reports of truck accidents involving large trucks colliding with cars and sometimes with much smaller trucks. The cause of these truck accidents is not always clearly evident. Such an accident occurred on the morning of May 22 in Midland when an 18-wheeler and a pickup truck collided on the Garden City Highway.

Truck accidents on 2-lane roads often result in fatalities

Trucking accidents in Texas are a continual problem that take a big toll in human loss, suffering and the destruction of family units. Truck accidents that occur on older, two-lane highways, are particularly frustrating. An example of that occurred this past weekend on State Highway 22 near the town of Hillsboro.

Commercial truck accidents can be financially devastating

Texas sees a lot of national and international trucking traffic. Commercial trucks are a common sight on highways, freeways, and surface streets. Unfortunately, that means that accidents involving commercial trucks are also common. Any motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause horrific injury, death, and severe property damage. When one of the involved vehicles is an eighteen-wheeler or other large commercial truck, the risk of serious injuries increases. While deadly commercial truck accidents have been declining, commercial truck accidents resulting in serious injury may be on the rise.

Speed limiting mandate may reduce serious truck accidents

Since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced their joint proposal to mandate speed limiters in large commercial vehicles, more than 5,000 people have taken advantage of the comment period. The purpose of the mandate is to potentially reduce the number of truck accidents that cause serious and fatal injuries. While the idea is appealing to some, many truckers in Texas and across the country are opposed to the plan.
