Man Hospitalized After Crashing Into an 18-Wheeler in Dallas
Shortly after the State Police opened up I-35 from an accident on January 8, 2022, another accident happened involving a passenger vehicle and semi-truck. Police were still on the scene from the previous accident. The passenger vehicle hit the back of the 18-wheeler, and the vehicle went underneath the semi-truck. Fire/rescue had to cut the vehicle’s roof off to remove the driver and transport him to the hospital. The driver suffered serious injuries. No further information was released at the time, and the accident is still under investigation.
Truck Accidents Are Complicated Events
Truck accidents can be very complex. The passengers in the smaller vehicle often suffer multiple or catastrophic injuries that require extensive or long-term medical care, and sadly, many Dallas truck accidents result in the death of one or more people. Establishing fault for these accidents can be more complicated than you would think. Both federal and state driving laws cover Semi-trucks, and there are often several parties that could be held responsible for the truck. Anyone involved in a truck-related accident is encouraged to speak with a Dallas personal injury lawyer.
