Alice Woman, 1 Injured in Truck Accident on US 59 in Wharton County, TX

Wharton County, TX -- December 10, 2022, an Alice woman and her passenger were injured due to an accident involving a semi-truck on US 58.

Public information from authorities said that the crash happened at around 1:00 a.m. at the intersection of US Highway 59 and County Road 216.

Details suggest that a 56-year-old Alice woman and a 25-year-old man were in a Ford Transit van traveling northbound along US 59. At CR-216, police say a westbound Mack truck failed to yield, crossing northbound lanes and crashing into the van.

Due to the crash, the Alice woman and her passenger were sent to the hospital. The truck driver also had injuries which were not described as serious. At this time, the exact cause of the crash remains unclear.

Reading details like these, I find people are often too quick to assume everything is straight-forward. Here, police claim that a truck ran a stop sign and crashed into a van. Open-and-shut, right? Perhaps, but those facts on their own do little for one of the biggest hurdles victims and families contend with: the companies that own the trucks.

Put simply, companies have every incentive to avoid responsibility, and they have a myriad of strategies to do so. This can range from something as innocuous as stonewalling investigators to actions as egregious as lying or fabricating evidence. The more people that understand these challenges, the less ground these companies will have to stand on when trying to cheat victims and families out of exercising their rights.
