Chandler, TX — January 6, 2023, three people were injured after an 18-wheeler crashed into Chandler City Hall following an accident on nearby Highway 31.

The 18-wheeler then ran off the road into the nearby city parking lot, where it hit three parked vehicles and then crashed into the wall of the building.

The truck driver and the Sawmill Road car's two occupants were transported to area hospitals with unspecified injuries.

No further information is currently available.

After looking into the crash police concluded that someone ran a stop sign and triggered this accident, after which the big rig went out of control and hit the nearby community center/city hall. For all I know they got things exactly right at first glance, but as with almost any collision it's best to investigate the matter carefully and thoroughly in case there are other contributing factors missed in the first go-round. The whole story, including subtler details that need a closer look, should be learned for everyone's sake. If there's more than met the eye of officers at the scene, the people affected deserve to know about it.
