San Angelo, TX — June 8, 2022, one person was injured in a collision between a pickup and a car on Irving Street in San Angelo.

According to reports the incident happened Wednesday afternoon on Irving Street at Harris Avenue, near the Tom Green County Courthouse. Preliminary investigation suggests a Chevy pickup was headed north on Irving when the driver started to make a left turn onto Harris. The driver allegedly failed to yield while turning and entered the path of a southbound Dodge Dart. The car and pickup collided at the intersection.

The pickup driver was cited for failing to yield the right of way.

Commentary on Auto Accident at Irving and Harris in San Angelo

On its face this just sounds like a basic car accident where someone made a careless error and turned into someone else's path. Maybe that's all there is to it, but images and video at the scene suggest the pickup might be a work truck. If the driver who failed to yield was in the middle of a work trip when the accident happened, that might change how it should be handled.

When a company's employee hurts someone while on the clock, the company may be responsible for the damage done under the legal principle of respondeat superior, or "let the master answer." If the San Angelo driver was headed to a job or back from one when they failed to yield, their employer may have a legal duty to help the injured driver get back on their feet.

Of course, just because some pictures make the truck look like a work truck doesn't mean it really is. A few rolls of material in the bed and a headache rack aren't ironclad proof. It's just one of many possible issues to address while learning more about what happened. At the very least the victim deserves to know the crash was taken seriously and every effort was made to find answers.
