Brittany Parramore Injured in Truck Accident on US-69 in Jacksonville, TX

Jacksonville, TX — August 23, 2022, 29-year-old Brittany Parramore was seriously injured in a crash with a commercial vehicle on U.S. Highway 69 in Jacksonville.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:20 p.m. on US-69 (Jackson Street) at Bolton Street. Preliminary investigation suggests a GMC C7500 truck was traveling south in the outside lane of Jackson Street as Parramore's eastbound Kia Forte sedan was stopped at the Bolton Street intersection.

Reports suggest Parramore may have failed to yield at the stop sign and pulled into the path of the oncoming truck. The car's left-front and the truck's right-front collided, causing the Kia to spin out.

Parramore suffered serious injuries in the collision and was taken to an area hospital. The truck driver reportedly claimed to be unhurt.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Brittany Parramore Accident in Jacksonville

Investigators believe the victim failed to yield here. Even if they're right, though, that doesn't really explain why. Before anyone decides it's just a matter of carelessness it's important to consider other potential factors as well.

For example: Did the Kia have any mechanical or brake problems? What about the driver--was she in good health, awake, and alert? Could something have blocked her view of the approaching truck? Was signage missing or unclear? Could bad weather or hazardous road conditions have been a factor? Does that area get a lot of similar crashes? Ignoring right-of-way for a moment, could the truck driver have done anything differently to avoid the collision or reduce its damage? How about where reports say the truck had "defective or no vehicle brakes?" Whether or not that was part of the collision, it's a huge red flag and should be looked into further on principle.

I'm not trying to overcomplicate things or unfairly blame anyone here; things that could have made a big difference just sometimes get overlooked during preliminary investigations. Many crashes aren't as simple as they might appear and crucial details are often missed or misunderstood. The victim deserves the benefit of the doubt while efforts are made to learn the full story. Will police be thorough enough to get it, or would an independent investigation stand a better chance of getting answers?
