Dallas, TX (April 26, 2022) – One man has lost his life as a result of a motor vehicle accident in the Dallas area. At around 1 p.m., on April 25, emergency crews were dispatched to the site of an auto accident on Interstate 365.
Reports provided by authorities show that a man was driving a blue 2009 Honda Accord on Interstate 365 when he became involved in a single-vehicle collision. His vehicle then became disabled on the left side of the interstate near Plano Road.
A semi-truck passing through the area attempted to pass another semi when it struck the Honda. The force of the crash caused both semi-trucks to strike a concrete barrier.
The truck that struck the Honda then disconnected from its trailer and caught on fire.
The driver of the Honda, who has not been identified, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
No reports of other injuries have been made at this time.
The circumstances surrounding the crash are under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the victim who lost their life as a result of this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas
Motor vehicle accidents reported in Texas claim the lives of more than 3,800 people each year. These accidents can often be attributed to some form of negligence. Accidents involving semi-trucks and commercial vehicles account for more than 530 fatal crashes. These vehicles are much larger than other passenger vehicles sharing the road. As a result, they are more likely to be destructive in collisions.
When victims lose their lives in crashes, their families are often forced to endure overwhelming consequences.
