Princeton Man Injured in Truck Accident on Harry Hines in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX -- December 23, 2022, a Princeton man was injured after an accident where his commercial truck crashed on Harry Hines Boulevard.

Preliminary details as told by authorities said that the crash happened just after 5:30 a.m. along Harry Hines Boulevard at the intersection of Community Drive. According to officials, a 43-year-old Princeton man was behind the wheel of a Mack truck traveling southbound. At the intersection, the truck somehow ran off the corner of the roadway and crashed into a light pole.

The driver sustained injuries said to be incapacitating. Police said they believe the driver fell asleep at the wheel, but not cause has been officially confirmed.

I know folks would see someone falling asleep and just put all the blame on them. Fatigue is generally avoidable, so it's understandable why folks would feel that way. But I've seen extenuating circumstances that made things a lot less simple.

For example, I had a case a while back where a truck driver fell asleep because his employer was forcing him to drive ridiculous hours (he'd been going for over 20 hours straight when that crash happened). What folks would write off as a reckless trucker was actually a whole company making drivers choose between safe driving and putting food on their families' tables. Maybe nothing so serious happened here, but it's best to remain open-minded and to let the evidence speak for itself.
