Scott Moore Killed in 18-Wheeler Accident on FM 193 in Crosby County, TX

Crosby County, TX — November 2, 2022, 46-year-old Scott Moore died in a tractor-trailer accident on Farm to Market Road 193 in Crosby County.

Authorities say the incident happened early Wednesday morning along FM 193. Preliminary investigation suggests Moore was driving an 18-wheeler along the roadway when he may have lost control in a curve. The truck went straight through it and Moore over-corrected, causing the big rig to crash into several drainage barriers and come to rest in a nearby field.

Moore, whom reports say was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Scott Moore Accident in Crosby County

It's not clear how this unfortunate accident happened, and as authorities try to put more of the puzzle together I certainly don't want to speculate. However, I already see at least one detail I fear won't get enough attention during the police investigation.

Reports allege the truck driver didn't have a seat belt on when the big rig crashed. Over the years I've seen many instances where that claim, made by police when they got to the scene and found the driver somewhere besides his seat, was actually incorrect. The assumption is that the driver wasn't buckled up, but time and again closer inspection shows the belt actually broke or failed, rendering it useless to the person whose only mistake was trusting a standard safety feature to work right.

I'm not insinuating anything about the condition or quality of the truck in Crosby County. I only know from long experience that such issues often aren't considered when police, whose chief concern is just whether someone broke the law, are the only ones to investigate a crash. The victim's loved ones deserve no less than the whole story.
