Chico–One Injured After Tractor Trailers Collided on Farm Road 1810

Posted on Monday, January 21st, 2019 at 2:49 am    

A fiery collision between tractor trailers on Farm Road 1810 at County Road 1490 sent one person to a hospital last Thursday evening.

According to initial reports, the Department of Public Safety responded to a crash on the said area just before 3:00 a.m. A 2014 Mack tractor trailer was attempting to pass in a no passing zone when it collided head on with a Peterbilt that was heading east. The trailer being towed by the Peterbilt then hit the trailer towed by 2007 Kenworth tractor trailer that was also heading west.

The Mack driver, identified as 59-year-old Earl Moore, sustained unknown injuries. He was rushed to Parkland Hospital via ground ambulance. His condition has not been disclosed.

The Kenworth and Peterbilt drivers were identified as Donald Langston, 52, and Michael Hartley, 64, respectively. They were not hurt.

Emergency crews responded to the scene to assist in the clearing of the site. The roads were reopened a few hours after.

Investigation is still in progress.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the injured victims. We are hoping and praying for a fast recovery of both parties.

Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person is getting 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 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. So before hitting the road, it is important to check your engine–ensure your all your tires are well-aligned and brakes are working properly.
