The Dallas Police Department is investigating a car accident involving a semi-truck on Interstate 30 which killed three people, according to a local news source.
At around 2:30 a.m., a major collision was reported in the eastbound lanes of Interstate-30, at Ferguson Road. A vehicle that was travelling at an unsafe speed crashed into the center median and rear-ended an 18-wheeler truck. The impact of the collision caused the vehicle to burst into flames. The car then hit a semi causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle and struck a barricade.
The impact of the collision was so great, trapping three people inside the wreckage. Meanwhile, the driver of the semi and a passenger inside the cab sustained injuries that were considered non-life threatening.
An investigation is underway.
Our deepest sympathies to the victim of this unfortunate event. We strongly believe that the Dallas Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Being a victim of a collision is an overwhelming experience. If you are a passenger in a car involved in crash, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention for yourself and anyone who needs it. After this, you’ll want to alert your insurance provider regarding damages or injuries you sustained from the collision. To submit a claim, you would need to gather documents supporting your claim. These may include a video of the scene or a photograph of the damages to the vehicles, police reports stating the facts of the accident, and medical records indicating the severity of your injury, to name a few.
