Three Injured in Truck Accident on Expressway 83 in McAllen, TX

McAllen, TX -- June 2, 2022, three people sustained injuries due to an accident where a truck and other vehicles crashed along Expressway 83.

Investigators reported that the crash took place at around 5:38 p.m. along Expressway 83/I-2 near Cynthia Street.

According to officials, vehicles were moving onto eastbound lanes of the expressway from an on-ramp. An 18-wheeler reportedly failed to control speed on the ramp, crashing into a car, pushing the car into a pickup.

Due to the crash, all three drivers were taken to hospitals with reportedly non-incapacitating injuries. At this time, the exact cause of the crash remains unclear.

Commentary on 18-wheeler Accident on Expressway 83 in McAllen

Folks tend to see crashes like this as open-and-shut. After all, how does someone run into the back of traffic without doing something wrong? Well, it's important to consider that there may have been some highly unusual, unavoidable factors. I'm not out here trying to blame people for no reasons. It's important the evidence speaks for itself, which is why thorough investigations are always important. But those investigations are also important in the event something rather typical led to the crash.

For example, I handled a crash a while back with details similar to these in which a semi crashed into traffic. It was pretty darn clear the truck driver was on his phone, but his company denied he even owned one. That certainly didn't sound right, but it was our burden to prove otherwise. Fortunately, our team was successful in putting together a lengthy deposition that tripped up the driver in his own stories, causing him to admit he did in fact own a cell phone (big surprise, I know). With that, we obtained a court order for the records, and they clearly showed the man had been too busy watching pornography at the time of the crash.

I'm not at all saying that happened here, of course. My point is simply that folks assume there's nothing complex about a rear-end collision, and that's just not always true. Folks need to be sure they have all the facts so they can convincingly tell their side of the story and get the help they need. Have the steps been taken here to ensure those involved have the answers they need going forward?
