Houston Man Injured in Dual Truck Accident on I-45 in Freestone County, TX

Freestone County, TX -- April 4, 2022, a Houston man was injured due to an accident where two 18-wheelers collided along I-45.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 5:10 p.m. along I-45 near mile marker 190. In their reports, a Houston man was in a Freightliner traveling northbound along the interstate. Somehow, that 18-wheeler reportedly failed to control speed, crashing into a second 18-wheeler.

As straight-forward as these reports may seem, it's important to take early reports with a grain of salt. They rarely tell the whole story. Even with a rear-end collision, there could be extenuating circumstances to consider.

For example, there's a big difference between rear-ending in 18-wheeler that slowed down for traffic and rear-ending a truck that suddenly pulled off the shoulder without signaling, as certainly happens. Other times, there can be even more complex crashes, like one I handled not long ago where a truck driver crashed because his company had him working unreasonable hours under threat of losing his job.

As common as things like recklessness and distracted driving are, jumping to conclusions isn't going to do any good. It's best to ensure there are thorough investigations so the facts can speak for themselves. Were those steps taken here?
