At least one person sustained injuries after a truck collision in a cotton field in Wall, Tuesday evening.
In an unspecified time in the evening, local authorities were requested to assist in a crash involving an 18-wheeler truck.

Details surrounding the incident remain unclear at this time but it was confirmed that a passenger suffered from injuries as a result of the collision. The extent of his injuries, as well as his identification, was not immediately released.
The driver was not injured. Authorities have yet to determine the reason why the truck wounded up in the field.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the injured victim. We are hoping and praying for their fast recovery.
Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person gets injured in approximately two minutes. Unfortunately, despite the government’s aggressive efforts to educate drivers about safety, the cases of speeding, driving under the influence, and negligence are still on the rise. In fact, most of the common causes of accidents in the state are due to the driver’s lack of awareness and precaution.
Knowing the statistics helps us to be more aware of how our choices can affect other people’s lives. For instance, driving while under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs dramatically increases your risk of being involved in a crash by roughly 16% and 24%, respectively. While these cases are extremely dangerous, these can be prevented by making the right decisions. So before hitting the road, know that car accidents leave scars and trauma that can be devastating for the victims
