Robertson County, TX – Truck Driver Hospitalized After Crash On Hwy 6
Robertson County, TX (April 17, 2019) – Around 6:30 a.m. on April 17, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to a series of accidents on Highway 6.
According to DPS troopers, a truck, which was hauling a boat, attempted to make a U-turn in front of a semi-truck. The driver of the semi was unable to stop his vehicle in time, causing him to strike the pickup.
The semi-truck driver was transported to the hospital following the collision to treat injuries sustained. The driver of the pickup was uninjured.
Our thoughts are with the injured truck-driver and his family at this time as we pray for a full recovery from the injuries he sustained in this crash.
Motor Vehicle Accidents In Texas
Reports show that between 2015 and 2016, there was a drastic increase in the number of individuals injured in semi-truck accidents across the nation. The number of victims jumped from 97,000 during the year 2015 to nearly 120,000 by 2016. Sadly, thousands of victims are injured in semi-truck accidents here in our own state.
Being involved in a semi-truck accident presents a far greater risk for injuries than most other types of motor vehicle accidents.
