Morning rush hour traffic was backed up for miles around the investigation of an early morning – about 3:20 a.m. – crash on Westbound Interstate 635 in Dallas. Another sad incident involving a tractor trailer truck and a small passenger vehicle, WFAA Channel 8 News reported that the car ran underneath the semi truck and the two vehicles ended up on the shoulder. As of 7:45 a.m., the names of the car wreck victims had not been released.
Accidents involving tractor-trailer trucks often involve reckless driving such as driver fatigue, and could be preventable if truck drivers weren’t driving too many hours in order to make more money. I urge motorists to be aware of the other vehicles around them when driving, especially when those vehicles are semi trucks. If you or someone you know has been in a motor vehicle accident or a truck accident, see an automobile accident attorney to discuss your legal options.
