Eric Perez Escoto Killed in 18-Wheeler Accident on Satsuma in Harris County, TX

UPDATE (January 18, 2023): The victim of this accident has been identified as 35-year-old Eric Perez Escoto.

Harris County, TX — December 6, 2022, one person died in a crash with a tractor-trailer on Satsuma in northwest Harris County.

Authorities say the incident happened Tuesday on the 7000 block of Satsuma near Farm to Market Road 529 in the area of Jersey Village. The cause and circumstances of the crash aren't yet known, but reports say a passenger vehicle and an 18-wheeler collided in the area.

Investigators confirmed one fatality after the wreck.

The investigation continues. No further information is available at this time.

There isn't much information yet about how exactly this crash happened or what caused it, but given the fatal injuries involved a careful investigation seems in order. To find the whole story police should look into many possible factors: driver mistakes like speeding or distraction, problems or defects in the vehicles, sightlines, road and weather conditions, signage and road markings, and any other potential issues that might have contributed to or caused the wreck.

Until more information is available and the picture is clearer it's best not to jump to conclusions, but the years have also taught me that a "by the book" police investigation might not find all the important or subtle details before it wraps up. That's why after serious accidents--particularly ones involving commercial vehicles--I often suggest independent investigations by experienced professionals to learn the whole story. At the very least the people who lost someone important deserve to know that no stone was left unturned.
