Jose Manzano San Roman, Cristina Manzano San Roman Injured in 18-wheeler Accident in Wharton County, TX

Wharton County, TX -- March 14, 2022, Jose and Cristina Manzano San Roman were injured after an accident involving an 18-wheeler.

In their initial reports, officials said that the crash took place at around 10:46 p.m. along US Highway 59 just off Walnut Street.

According to authorities, 42-year-old Jose Manzano San Roman and 47-year-old Cristina Manzano San Roman were in a vehicle traveling northbound on the highway. From the nearby FM 1161 exit ramp, it appears an 18-wheeler went the wrong direction up the exit ramp, then turned onto northbound lanes. As a result, Manzano San Roman's vehicle crashed into the trailer.

Due to the crash, Jose Manzano San Roman reportedly had non-incapacitating injuries. Cristina reportedly had possible injuries, as well. Additional details about the crash are not available at this time.

Commentary on Jose Manzano San Roman 18-wheeler Accident in Wharton County

If these details are accurate, this is about as ridiculous behavior as a truck driver can engage in. The average driver should be able to get on a highway without going the wrong direction on an exit ramp. A supposed professional making this mistake raises some big red flags. Maybe this was just some highly unusual, momentary lapse in judgment. A lot of times, however, these incidents can be the result of more serious issues.

Not long ago, for example, I had a situation come to me where we found out a truck driver was barely trained. His company just hired some rookie, rushed him through all of the safety training, and threw him onto the road as soon as they could. Any halfway decent trucker can attest to how reckless this is, considering the experience and skill it takes to safely operate a commercial truck. It was just a matter of time before people got hurt.

Maybe nothing so complex happened here, but did the authorities ever take steps to find out what all led up to this unbelievable mistake?
