Hailey Frazier Injured in Truck Accident on I-20 in Abilene, TX

Abilene, TX — May 17, 2022, 35-year-old Hailey Frazier was injured in a three-vehicle accident on Interstate 20 in Abilene.

According to reports the incident happened around 3:15 p.m. on I-20 near mile marker 293. Preliminary investigation suggests a Kenworth construction truck was traveling west in the outside lane of the interstate, some distance behind Frazier's Toyota Prius and a Lexus sedan.

Reports say the cars slowed for traffic ahead and the truck driver tried to change lanes to go around them. He allegedly failed to safely alter his course and instead hit the back of the Toyota. The impact pushed the Toyota west around 100 feet and it struck the Lexus.

Frazier reportedly received minor injuries in the crash. No other injuries were reported.

Commentary on Hailey Frazier Accident on I-20 in Abilene

It's at least something of a relief that the injuries here were reportedly minor, though that's no still reason to take the wreck lightly. I've seen cases where "minor" injuries turned out to be anything but, and it's important folks are as prepared as possible in case something like that rears its ugly head.

For example, a while back a client was involved in a crash with a commercial truck. Doctors first told him he was lucky to have just a sore back and sent him home with instructions to use a heating pad and stay off his feet.

Not long after, that soreness became crippling pain. Further tests showed the crash actually ruptured a disk in the victim's spine. That "minor" injury ultimately required surgery and months of recovery, not to mention a drawn-out battle with the insurance company to get them to take responsibility.

I certainly hope nothing like that happens after the Abilene wreck, but that man was able to get help because he reached out as soon as he could. Others that wait too long may find they no longer have access to the tools and evidence required to get the help they need. At worst they're overprepared for nothing, which is always better than the opposite.
