Amber Linda Deanda Injured in Truck Accident in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- May 19, 2022, Amber Linda Deanda was injured due to an accident where a tractor-trailer crashed with Deanda's vehicle.

Officials reported that the crash took place at around 6:40 p.m. along Sam Houston Parkway at Monroe Boulevard.

According to investigators, 39-year-old Amber Linda Deanda was in a Lexus traveling westbound along the roadway and attempted to turn left, reportedly with the green light. While doing so, a tractor-trailer to the left of Deanda went straight in a turn only lane, hitting Deanda's vehicle. Those vehicles then hit a nearby truck.

Deanda had incapacitating injuries due to the crash, reports say. No other injuries were reported. Police did not give additional details about the crash.

Commentary on Amber Linda Deanda Truck Accident in Houston

One would think that a truck driver, with all the training and skill it takes to operate a semi-truck, could follow simple traffic directions. Going straight through a turn lane is bad enough, but somehow failing to see a car next to the truck makes me wonder just what in the heck this driver was thinking.

I know some folks will the roll their eyes and think, "Oh great, another lawyer here to make truckers look bad." That's not at all why I am here. In fact, I always make sure the independent investigators I have look into truck wrecks consider even the unlikely scenarios, such as mechanical issues, problems with the signage or signals at the intersection, or even medical conditions that may have played a role. But there's another complex possibility to consider which just about every trucker I've known personally would agree is worth attention: the company involved.

Here's why I say that. It isn't necessarily that truck drivers that make mistakes are all inherently reckless drivers. They may make reckless decisions, but those decisions are often made at the behest of unreasonable and demanding supervisors that care more about getting business than keeping the public or even their own drivers safe.

That's how one gets a situation like one I handled not long ago where a truck driver fell asleep after being behind the wheel for over twenty hours straight. Our investigations found that the company would routinely force drivers to meet unreasonable deadlines. If drivers failed or refused to do so, they risked losing their jobs. How long before drivers, forced to choose between being safe and putting food on their family's table, makes a deadly mistake?

Again, I'm not saying that happened here, and I wouldn't ever jump to conclusions without more thorough investigations. My point is that people involved in a serious truck wreck don't just need help--important as that is. They also deserve to know the right people are being held accountable. Thorough independent investigations can help to ensure both happen through clear, convincing evidence. These preliminary reports alone don't likely tell the whole story, so there may need to be steps to get more information about what really happened here.
