Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas
Each year, over 4400 people lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Texas. More than 700 people are fatally injured in accidents involving semi-trucks. These vehicles are much larger and heavier than others sharing the road. As a result, they are more likely to cause severe injuries and death in crashes.
There are various factors that can lead to fatal truck accidents taking place. These include:
- Drivers who are impaired while operating their vehicles
- Drivers who are distracted while behind the wheel
- Drivers who are drowsy
- Drivers who are speeding to make it to their destination
