Teenagers Injured in Truck Accident on FM 1461 in Collin County, TX

Collin County, TX -- April 5, 2021, two teenagers sustained injuries after an accident where their vehicle crashed with a truck along FM 1461.

Preliminary reports from authorities said that the accident took place at around 3:14 p.m. along FM 1461 near Franklin Branch Road.

According to officials, a 17-year-old and a 14-year-old were in a Honda Civic traveling northbound on FM 1461. Their vehicle reportedly turned left, resulting in a collision with an oncoming semi-truck.

Due to the collision, both teenagers reportedly had incapacitating injuries. Right now, the exact cause of the crash remains unclear.

Commentary on Truck Accident on FM 1461 in Collin County

Generally speaking, it's important to take reports about teenagers involved in a serious wreck with a grain of salt. Put simply, they are more likely to cause wrecks, but that can lead even the authorities to jump to conclusions without proper evidence. That means crucial evidence can slip through the cracks, which can be a significant barrier between the victims and the help they need.

For any serious truck wreck, a proper investigation should consider even unlikely possible factors. For example, I had a case come across my desk a while back in which a woman seemingly turned left into the path of an oncoming 18-wheeler, causing a collision. As open-and-shut as that seemed, continued independent investigations revealed that it was quite foggy at the time of the crash, the truck's headlights were dirty and therefore too dim, and the 18-wheeler may have even been speeding. That didn't necessarily mean the victim did nothing wrong, but it certainly showed the crash to be far more complex than initial reports made it seem.

While it's possible authorities were thorough here, it's best not to take that kind of chance. All the facts should be able to speak for themselves, and that's rarely more true than when considering how to get a couple of kids the help they need.
