Rosalinda McCumba Injured in Truck Accident on SH 46 South in New Braunfels, TX

New Braunfels, TX — December 10, 2022, 67-year-old Rosalinda McCumba was seriously injured in a multi-vehicle accident on State Highway 46 South in New Braunfels.

Authorities say the incident happened around 8:15 a.m. on SH 46S at River Tree Drive. Preliminary investigation suggests McCumba was eastbound on Rivertree when she attempted to turn left onto northbound Highway 46 South. Multiple witnesses and dashcam footage reportedly show that a southbound Freightliner tractor-trailer ran a red light before crashing into McCumba's Honda Civic.

The big rig then veered out of control and jackknifed, after which its trailer overturned. The trailer slid into several vehicles waiting at the northbound red light on Highway 46, causing a chain reaction.

Rosalinda McCumba suffered incapacitating injuries in the crash. One of the northbound drivers reported minor injuries; no other injuries were reported.

No further information is currently available.

Several eyewitnesses agreed and even dashcam footage apparently showed that the big rig driver ran a red light and triggered this major wreck. Some may think that's already enough to ensure he and the company behind him have to accept responsibility, but the truth is commercial truck accidents are rarely that cut-and-dried.

No matter how damning preliminary reports may sound, companies almost inevitably fight hard to avoid responsibility. They have no shortage of tricks and tactics to reduce or even eliminate their share of the blame, and they're not shy about bringing every one of them to bear. It's best to be informed about what kind of hurdles someone might face after a wreck like this, so I put down some thoughts about what to watch out for--and how to overcome it.
