A truck driver died after getting involved in a deadly crash on Farm to Market Road 2920, Monday morning.
At around 11:40 a.m., Harris County sheriff officials responded to the 26300 block of FM 2920 after receiving a call reporting a collision. According to the report, a 2010 International truck-tractor with an attached semi-trailer loaded with cars was heading west on the highway when it failed to slow down while approaching slower-moving traffic ahead of it. It struck a Chevrolet Tahoe which prompted a chain-reaction crash involving a stopped Chevrolet Silverado.
The driver of the 18-wheeler truck was pronounced deceased after the vehicle overturned and veered off the roadway. His identification has yet to be released pending notification of his next of kin.
No one else was injured, as per the local news source.
The crash is under investigation.
We believe that when someone loses a loved one from a car accident, they do not only suffer emotionally but financially as well. If you or your loved one is a victim of a car accident caused by wrongful actions or due to negligence, you may have the right to file for legal claims. Most of the time, families who are left behind after a tragic loss are not aware of their rights and the legal processes needed to obtain fair and just compensation. In times like this, you would need a professional who can provide you with all the support you need as you go through this difficult time. Talk to your personal injury or car accident lawyer for assistance.
According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of the day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.
