Richard Stein, Barbara Gail Martin Injured in Truck Accident in Aransas County, TX

Aransas County, TX -- December 7, 2022, Richard Stein and Barbara Gail Martin were injured following an accident where a truck hit them.

Preliminary information about the crash said that the incident happened at around 2:00 p.m. along Business 35 near Old Schoolhouse Road.

It appears that 71-year-old Richard Stein and 70-year-old Barbara Gail Martin were on a motorcycle traveling southwest along the highway. They came to a stop due to construction. For reasons unconfirmed, a Ford F-450 then failed to control speed and hit the motorcycle, authorities said.

As a result of the collision, Stein and Martin were said to have incapacitating injuries. No other injuries were reported, and it's unclear if any charges were filed. Frankly, it wouldn't surprise me if there were. To be clear, I can't say what exactly happened here. For all I know, the truck experienced sudden brake failure due to a defect. Is that possible? Sure. Is it likely? Not at all. It's far more likely this guy screwed up.

Rear-end collisions are all too common, and the fact of the matter is they almost always involved speeding, following too closely, poorly maintained vehicles, or distraction (to no one's surprise). As simple as that may sound, however, one of the reasons I get so many incidents similar to this one on my desk is because folks don't realize just how much problem insurance companies can cause even after crashes which seem about as straight-forward as they could possibly be. That's one of the reasons it's in people's best interest to ensure they have the tools, allies, evidence, and dedication to overcome those barriers.
