Dallas, TX (May 17, 2022) – A man in a wheelchair has suffered fatal injuries following an auto accident on Saturday evening in the Dallas area. At around 10 p.m., on May 10, calls for help were received regarding a crash that occurred on Buckner Boulevard.

Reports from authorities show that a Chevrolet was towing a trailer north on Buckner Boulevard during the evening hours. As the driver made a left turn onto Cordell Drive, it collided with a southbound pickup truck that was driven by a 19-year-old male. The impact of the crash caused the trailer to swing over and strike a man who was sitting in a wheelchair at the intersection. The pedestrian was then pushed into a Hyundai that was stopped at a stop sign.

The pedestrian was rushed to a local hospital where he later passed away from his injuries.

The severity of injuries of other parties is not known at this time.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the victim who lost their life in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas

Dallas, TX – Man in Wheelchair Struck, Killed in Three-Vehicle Crash at Buckner Blvd near Cordell DrEvery year, thousands of pedestrians are negatively affected by motor vehicle accidents across the state of Texas. Although we hope that everyone will be able to recover from their injuries, this is not always the case.

Pedestrian accidents can take place for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these collisions take place due to drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. We see many people suffer fatal injuries in accidents due to drivers who are speeding, those who fail to yield the right of way, and motorists who are distracted.
