Truck Driver Injured in 18-Wheeler Crash on US-277 in Jones County, TX

Jones County, TX -- April 25, 2022, a 38-year-old truck driver was injured in a solo 18-wheeler crash on U.S. Highway 277 in Jones County.

Reports say the incident happened around 7:30 p.m. on US-277 at State Highway 92. Preliminary investigation suggests a Peterbilt semi-truck was towing a trailer south on the highway when the driver allegedly failed to negotiate a leftward curve. The then over-corrected and the truck entered a side-skid to the right. It slid off the road and both truck and trailer overturned. The trailer hit a road sign and detached from the tractor.

The truck's cab detached from its frame during the crash and the unrestrained driver was ejected, landing between the tractor frame and the loose cab. He suffered serious injuries.

When interviewed at the hospital the truck driver said several times that another vehicle pulled into his path and he swerved hard to avoid it, triggering the wreck. Investigators found no evidence of another vehicle but said it's possible that's what happened.

No further information is currently available.
