Michelle Danielle Campbell Woodworth Injured in 18-wheeler Accident in Burkburnett, TX

Burkburnett, TX -- May 12, 2022, Michelle Campbell Woodworth was injured due to an accident where an 18-wheeler hit her vehicle.

According to preliminary reports, officials said that the incident occurred off the corner of Red River Expressway and Sycamore Drive at around 7:45 a.m.

Investigators said that 38-year-old Michelle Danielle Campbell Woodworth was in a Kia Soul at an ATM. The reports say that Woodworth was hanging out the side of the vehicle while making a deposit.

While doing so, a tanker truck exiting the parking lot somehow clipped Woodworth's vehicle, partially dragging it and causing Woodworth to fall out of the vehicle.

The truck left the scene, but authorities say they identified and contacted the driver. Woodworth reportedly had non-incapacitating injuries due to the crash. Right now, no additional details are available.

Commentary on Michelle Campbell Woodworth 18-wheeler Accident in Burkburnett

Clearly this was all just a series of unfortunate events and people being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But the fact that the truck driver somehow failed to notice partially dragging a whole car stands out. It is entirely possible that the truck driver not noticing the collision was reasonable, depending on the actual severity of the collision and the size disparity of the vehicles.

But not only would most reasonably prudent truck drivers have the wherewithal to not hit someone sitting at an ATM, they'd also likely realize if they hit that vehicle. So what was different here? Is this just a highly unusual, unavoidable series of events, or would a more reasonably prudent truck driver have noticed the collision--or would they have even avoided the collision altogether? Making sure investigators are actually asking these questions would no doubt be a positive step forward.
