Woman Injured in Tractor-Trailer Accident on Mount Houston Road in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- March 5, 2022, one person was injured due to an accident where a tractor-trailer crashed with a car along Mount Houston Road.

Investigators reported that the crash took place at around 11:52 a.m. on Mount Houston Road at Homestead Road.

According to officials, a 44-year-old woman was in a vehicle traveling westbound on Mount Houston in the right lane. From the left, police say an 18-wheeler also going westbound made a turn from a straight-only lane, crashing with the woman's car.

The woman reportedly had non-incapacitating injuries due to the crash. Reports did not give any additional details about the crash.

Commentary on Tractor-Trailer Accident on Mount Houston Road in Houston

Turning from a straight-only lane is dangerous enough, but somehow failing to see a car in the other lane only makes me more concerned about this truck driver's abilities. Something authorities often overlook is that someone's mistakes are sometimes a sign of a bigger problem. It's important there are investigations into those possibilities.

For example, I handled a situation a while back in which a truck driver caused a wreck making a dumb mistake. As we dug into his history, it turned out he had barely any experience with commercial trucks. Not only that, but records confirmed that his employer barely trained him at all, putting him in charge of a multi-ton hunk of steel without any of the skills needed to operate it safely. Responsible trucks will be the first to say how much care goes into doing their jobs safely. If a company doesn't vet or train drivers properly, it's a time bomb waiting to go off.

Maybe nothing so complex happened here, but the only way to be sure is to get some answers. Were steps ever taken here to find out what all led to this crash?
