One Injured in Crash with 18-Wheeler on India Rd in Armstrong County, TX

Armstrong County, TX — November 3, 2022, a 22-year-old man was seriously injured in a crash with a tractor-trailer on India Road in Armstrong County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 11:50 a.m. on India Road at County Road 21. Preliminary investigation suggests a Freightliner 18-wheeler was eastbound on India as the victim was driving a Chevy Express van north on CR 21, both headed toward the roads' open intersection. Investigators say both vehicles arrived at the same time and the truck driver failed to yield the right-of-way to the van on its right, which then crashed into the truck's passenger side. The truck jackknifed off the north side of the road and the van ran off the south side.

The van's driver suffered serious injuries in the collision; the truck driver reportedly received minor injuries. Both were transported to area hospitals.
