Man Injured in Tractor-Trailer Accident on Singleton Boulevard in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX -- May 23, 2022, one person was injured due to an accident where their vehicle crashed with a tractor-trailer on Singleton.

Officials said that the crash happened at around 8:00 a.m. in the area of Singleton Boulevard and Peoria Avenue.

Authorities said that a 30-year-old man was in a GMC Yukon traveling eastbound on Singleton. Ahead, a tractor-trailer was making a u-turn to westbound lanes, blocking all three lanes of Singleton. While doing so, the GMC crashed into the trailer.

The GMC driver reportedly sustained non-incapacitating injuries due to the crash. No other injuries were reported. No further details about the crash are available at this time.

Commentary on Tractor-Trailer Accident on Singleton in Dallas

With a crash like this, it's important to anticipate the potential roadblocks trucking companies tend to put between victims and the help they need. A tractor-trailer blocking multiple lanes with no mention of a flagger or visibility markers is concerning, obviously, but it's still important to ensure evidence is telling the story.

For example, I handled a situation where a truck was sticking out into a traffic, and a car hit the steel hanging off the trailer, killing that driver. As much as the trucking company tried to blame the victim, saying they should have avoided the stationary obstruction, our investigations showed how ridiculous that was.

For one, it was illegal to block lanes of travel. The truck simply should have found a safer way to get where they were going. Secondly, the cargo was marked by a "red" flag, but it was so worn and faded it might as well have been invisible. Only after picking apart their ridiculous defense did they actually begin to cooperate.

Maybe nothing so complex is going to happen here, but the hundreds of people I've helped after a commercial vehicle wreck learn just how important it is to have a solid foundation of facts as soon as possible.
