Truck Accidents in Texas

Van Zandt County, TX – 1 Killed in Fatal Two-Vehicle Crash on State Route 64Unfortunately, statistics show that for every 15,000 truck accidents that occur in Texas, almost 300 people suffer fatal injuries. Most of the time truck accidents happen when drivers are overworked and fatigued or distracted. Other times the truck could be carrying too much cargo, making it easier for a truck to jack knife or fall over during sharp turns, potentially harming everyone in close proximity.
