Makayla Fuller, 7 Injured in Multi-Vehicle Car Accident in Waskom, TX

Waskom, TX -- June 5, 2022, Makayla Fuller and seven others were reportedly injured due to a multi-vehicle crash on the interstate.

Waskom, Marshall, and HArrison County officials responded to the area of I-20 mile marker 635 at around 12:51 a.m.

According to initial reports, 20-year-old Makayla Fuller was a passenger in a Nissan Altima traveling eastbound on the interstate. Ahead, a chain reaction collision occurred after a vehicle failed to slow down, hitting multiple vehicles. Following this, an 18-wheeler then rear-ended the Nissan Fuller was in. It's possible this vehicle then left the scene.

As a result of the crash, Fuller and at least three others were said to have incapacitating injuries. Four others were possibly injured. Some news reports described the crash as fatal, though it is unclear if there were any fatalities resulting from the crash.

This and other details remain under investigation.

Commentary on Makayla Fuller Truck Accident in Waskom

This is quite the chaotic series of events, and it's not exactly unusual that there are so few details to go off of. After all, a multi-vehicle wreck is complex enough. One involving multiple trucks, one of which possibly fled the scene, is only going to make things more challenging. In my experience, if one vehicle is able to slow down without incident and another isn't, the latter driver was doing something wrong. Maybe things are more complex here, but experience tells me that the driver that left this scene needs to be held responsible, even if others involved in the crash may have also made mistakes.

While some folks automatically give up hope when police can't identify a runaway driver, I know how important it is to keep up the pressure. A while back, we circulated information about a hit-and-run, and a couple came forward with information. They witnessed the truck in that crash and wrote down its information. The police somehow lost track of that information and never followed up, so those folks coming to us helped identify the truck driver and get that family the closure they deserved.

Again, I can't say exactly what happened here, but it shouldn't be a surprise to say this accident is no doubt incredibly complex. Ensuring there are proper tools and strategies in place to navigate this maze and get as much answers and help for the victims and families as possible is crucial. That's especially true if someone did indeed tragically lose their life here.
