Grover Colmon, Ronald Waters Injured in Semi-Truck Accident in San Jacinto County, TX

San Jacinto County, TX -- December 22, 2022, Grover Colmon and Ronald Waters were identified as two drivers injured in a truck accident.

Details given in local news publications say the crash took place at around 6:40 a.m. along southbound lanes of US Highway 453A.

43-year-old Grover Colmon was said to be the driver of a Kenworth traveling southbound while 41-year-old Ronald Waters was said to be in a Freightliner traveling the same direction. For reasons which have not been confirmed at this time, the vehicles collided. Sources said the Freightliner hit the rear of the Kenworth. Both Colmon and Waters were said to have been taken from the scene to area hospitals. Their conditions weren't specified.

Right now, investigations are ongoing, but I can't help wondering who is handling those investigations and how thorough they're being. The obvious answer would seem to be that the authorities are investigating things, but that's exactly what I'm concerned about. Why is that?

The short version is that 30 years of helping families through commercial truck wrecks taught me that authorities on their own rarely have the tools, time, or training for something as complex as a commercial vehicle accident--let alone one involving two semi-trucks. Victims and families need answers, and truck drivers themselves are no exceptions. That's why ensuring experienced accident reconstructionists look into things is often the more prudent path forward, and I'd be shocked if this situation was somehow an exception.
