18-Wheeler Rear-Ends Van on Camino Real, One Injured in Hays County, TX

Hays County, TX — October 4, 2022, a 57-year-old man was seriously injured in a crash with a tractor-trailer on Camino Real in Hays County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 12:00 p.m. on Camino Real (State Highway 21) at Niederwald Drive. Preliminary investigation suggests an International semi-truck was towing a trailer southwest on the highway, some distance behind the victim's GMC Safari van.

According to reports the victim stopped at the Niederwald intersection and waited to turn left, at which point the truck driver failed to control speed and rear-ended the van.

The van's driver was seriously injured in the collision. The truck driver was unhurt.

No further information is currently available.

I don't know more about this accident than reports convey, but the claims that a commercial truck rear-ended someone who slowed to make a turn are obviously concerning. That could mean the truck driver made a momentary but serious mistake at the wheel, or it could mean something went haywire in his big rig and kept him from slowing down. It's not for me to say here on the sidelines, but it's definitely something that needs to be clarified as fully--and as soon--as possible. Did authorities take the needed steps to get the whole story, or is there still confusion or doubt about who or what's to blame for the damage done in Hays County?
