Tomasa Chavarria Injured in Farmers Branch, TX Truck Accident on Inwood Road

Farmers Branch, TX — August 5, 2022, 47-year-old Tomasa Chavarria was seriously injured in a crash with a commercial truck on Inwood Road in Farmers Branch.

Reports say the incident happened around 12:30 p.m. on Inwood at Spring Valley Road. Preliminary investigation suggests a Mack truck was traveling south on Inwood when he alleged he received a green turn arrow and started to turn left onto eastbound Spring Valley.

On the other side, Chavarria was driving a Dodge Journey north on Inwood. She later told police she had a solid green light and started to travel through the intersection when the turning Mack truck crashed into her SUV.

Chavarria suffered serious injuries in the collision; her 18-year-old daughter, a passenger in the Dodge, received a broken ankle.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Tomasa Chavarria Accident in Farmers Branch

Reports suggest both drivers believe they had the right-of-way before the collision. It's important that investigators look carefully at the scene and figure out whose account of events is accurate, because without clear evidence the matter may remain a "he said/she said" argument--which the injured victim may lose since the trucking company's resources may tip the scales.

That's why it's best to dig deeper and find the facts. I worked on a crash once, for example, where a truck and a car crashed at a light much like the situation in Farmers Branch. Both drivers claimed to have a green light, and the frustrated investigating officer finally threw their hands up and said, "You two figure it out" (yes, they can do that).

The trucker's company backed him and said the crash wasn't his fault, so to level the playing field the car's driver contacted us. It didn't take us long to track down security footage from a nearby business which clearly showed the truck run the light. Faced with that clear proof, the company grudgingly agreed to help.

That's why it's so crucial to make sure independent investigators look into crashes like this. It's not always as simple as just waiting for police to look into things. There may be complex factors here that require professionals with the time and training to make proper sense of the matter. Can police offer that same degree of care?
