Posted on Thursday, January 17th, 2019 at 11:37 pm    

On Thursday, January 17, 2019, a major accident involving tractor-trailers occurred on FM 1810 at County Road 1450, near Chico, just before 3 in the morning.

According to the reports, several tractor-trailers collided into each other on the road, and the impact was so severe that one of them caught fire. Medical helicopters were initially requested, but because of the weather, none were able to fly.

One person was transported to Parkland Hospital in Dallas with burns on his head and face. The Department of Public Safety troopers had shut down FM 1810 in both directions because of this accident.

Vehicular accidents like this are alarmingly common nowadays. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. This can be translated to roughly about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone.

Tractor-trailer accident is a particular kind of vehicular accidents, and it is quite a deadly one simply because a tractor-trailer is one of the largest and most dangerous vehicles in the world. In the United States alone, it is estimated that there are more than 2 million tractor-trailers cruising America’s roadways, and every year, they are involved in more than 500,000 accidents. And because of a tractor-trailer’s size, the results of this kind of accident are of course catastrophic, from a severe injury to death.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims of the truck accident that happened on FM 1810, and if you are a victim of this kind of accident yourself, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please don’t hesitate to ask for help. The police will always be there for you, but more than that, lawyers specializing in truck accidents are more than willing to help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.
