Cleveland Woman Injured in Truck Accident off US 90 in Katy, TX

Katy, TX -- May 2, 2022, a Cleveland woman was injured due to an accident where a truck backed into here along US 90.

Officials said that the crash took place at around 9:40 a.m. at a location off the corner of US 90 and Cane Island Parkway.

In their reports, authorities said that a 32-year-old woman was outside of her tractor-trailer checking hose connections. While doing so, another tractor-trailer passing her somehow hit her while backing up.

The woman reportedly had non-incapacitating injuries due to the crash. Authorities did not release additional details about the incident.

Commentary on Tractor-Trailer Accident at Cane Island in Katy

One would think that a professional driver surrounded by other trucks would have enough awareness not to hit someone next to their own truck. Maybe the circumstances were such that the truck driver couldn't avoid the victim. I'm certainly not going to say I know more than what these reports say. At the same time, responsible truck drivers tend to have stories of others in their profession that simply don't belong in a commercial truck.

I had this one case a while back for example where a truck driver turned out to be completely inexperienced. Records showed that his employer barely trained him at all, rushing through vital safety training that any truck driver should have. As a result, it was just a matter of time before he got himself or someone else seriously hurt, and that's exactly what happened.

That's why a situation like this is rarely simple or straight-forward. Truck drivers are not immune from the challenges that often surround getting help after a serious accident. They, too, need to ensure they have the evidence and tools to overcome whatever barriers are put in their path. Police reports alone aren't likely to be enough.
