Carthage, TX (October 28, 2021) – One man has lost his life following a motor vehicle accident just outside the city of Carthage on Monday morning, October 25.
Reports from the Texas Department of Public Safety show that a 2019 Dodge pickup truck towing a semi-trailer was traveling southwest on US Highway 79. As the vehicle slowed to make a left turn into a private drive, the vehicle cut over the center line and cut off the Subaru.
The Subaru driver took evasive actions to avoid a collision with the Dodge. Instead, the vehicle collided with a 2007 Kenworth truck-tractor towing a trailer.
The driver of the Subaru, 37-year-old Adam Pacetti, sustained severe injuries in the accident. Emergency crews arrived at the scene to assist the victim. However, he was declared deceased at the scene.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Adam Pacetti. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas
In Texas, more than 500 people lose their lives each year in motor vehicle collisions involving semi-trucks and large commercial vehicles. These vehicles, in particular, are much larger than others sharing the road. As a result, the chances of them causing fatal injuries to those involved in crashes are greatly increased.
The loss of a loved one is something that most people are not prepared to deal with. Your family may be struggling to find answers as to why your loved one had to lose their life. When negligence plays a role, accepting the loss is even more challenging.

These and other financial burdens just make it more challenging to move forward. For this reason, it is crucial that you reach out to a wrongful death lawyer in San Antonio as soon as possible. You may have legal options available to help you get justice.
