Humberto Rafael Flores Injured in Truck Accident in Midland, TX

Midland, TX -- December 18, 2022, Humberto Rafael Flores was injured after an accident where his vehicle crashed with a semi-trailer.

Initial details said that the incident happened at approximately 4:11 a.m. on I-20 near mile marker 137. Officials released information which indicated that 32-year-old Humberto Rafael Flores was behind the wheel of a Ford F-150 traveling eastbound along the interstate.

An 18-wheeler driver was ahead of Flores and apparently told officers that he pulled to the side to let Flores pass, but Flores's vehicle hit the back of the 18-wheeler. Due to this, Flores sustained injuries said to be incapacitating. My concern is exactly what the nature of those injuries were and whether or not that had an effect on these preliminary details. Why do I say that?

Essentially, statements from drivers involved in a crash are always important, but it's a concerning sign if that's the only side of the story being told. Oftentimes, a victim will be taken from the scene due to the severity of their injuries and won't have a chance to speak with police. While officers are generally responsible enough to follow up with the victims later on, others can let that slip through the cracks.

So what happened here? Are these early details supported by clear evidence? Are there independent witnesses not involved in the crash? Is there video evidence? Or, are these reports only telling a one-sided story of events that ultimately sent someone to the emergency room? More importantly, would anyone be okay with that if they were put in the same position as this man and his family?
