One Injured in Crash with 18-Wheeler on Meacham Blvd in Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, TX — October 5, 2022, a 49-year-old man was seriously injured in a crash with a tractor-trailer on Meacham Boulevard in Fort Worth.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:10 p.m. on Meacham at Blue Mound Road. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim was driving a Ford Edge south on Blue Mound when police say the driver ran a red light and entered the Meacham intersection. As the Ford continued south it was hit on its driver's side by a westbound Kenworth 18-wheeler that had a green light on Meacham.

The Ford driver was seriously injured in the wreck. No other injuries were reported.

No further information is currently available.

Some folks may see this as a pretty straightforward situation, but I wonder if there's more to this than what police bothered to find out. Once they saw the truck's dashcam footage allegedly showing what happened I suspect they didn't ask many more questions, but as always careful and thorough investigation is needed to learn the whole story.

For instance, the cause of a crash and the cause of a victim's injuries aren't always the same thing. People would be shocked how many times a situation goes from bad to worse because airbags deploy late, seatbelts don't lock or come uncoupled, or something else fails to do its job during a collision. Heck, the media ran countless stories about a particular airbag brand that could eject sharp metal shards at the driver when it deploys.

Am I saying things have to be more complicated than they seem? Not at all. Am I saying they could be and nobody looked for more information during a once-over at the scene? Most definitely. Will anyone take a second look to be sure the whole story is really known? That remains to be seen.
