The Sheriff’s office closed off the interstate for several hours as they worked to clear the scene and investigate.

Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas

Dallas, TX – One Killed in Truck Accident on I-30 near Dolphin RdMotor vehicle accidents take the lives of more than 4400 people every year in the state of Texas. Unfortunately, hundreds of people lose their lives in accidents involving trucks. Semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles are much larger than most passenger vehicles on the road. As a result, they are more likely to cause significant damage during collisions.

Although we want to believe that everybody is careful and considerate of every other person driving on roadways in our state, this is far from reality. We constantly see people lose their lives in motor vehicle collisions due to motorists who engage in reckless, negligent, and malicious actions while operating their vehicles. Some of the most common causes of fatal accidents in Texas include:

  • failing to yield to others
  • changing lanes in a reckless manner
  • driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • driving while using cell phones or while distracted by other means

When people engage in these and other reckless actions while behind the wheel, they put everyone else’s lives on the road at risk.
