Fatal Collisions In Texas

Rio Hondo, TX – Female Killed in Collision on Centerline RoadOn average, ten people lose their lives every day in motor vehicle collisions across Texas. When these accidents involve semi-trucks, victims are more likely to sustain catastrophic and fatal injuries. Sadly, the size and weight of these vehicles provide little chance for smaller sedans on the road.
