Woman, Trucker Injured in 18-wheeler Accident on US 54 in Sherman County, TX

Sherman County, TX -- December 16, 2022. a woman and a truck driver were injured after an accident where multiple tractor trailers collided.

Details released by authorities put the crash in the area of US Highway 54 mile marker 318 at around 5:00 a.m.

It appears that the events began after a Freightliner tractor-trailer traveling northeast on the highway allegedly drove too fast for icy conditions. As a result, the truck crashed into a Kenworth tractor trailer also headed northbound. A chain reaction then occurred, involving multiple vehicles in the oncoming lanes.

One of those drivers, a 33-year-old woman in a Ford Fiesta, had incapacitating injuries. The Freightliner driver's injuries were also said to be incapacitating. It appears no one else was hurt.

The exact cause if the crash has not been confirmed, but it does not surprise me to see authorities suspect that unsafe speeds was a factor. Frankly, that's almost always the cause of crashes in inclement weather. But what may come as a surprise is that even a damning detail like that rarely stops trucking companies from coming up with all kinds of creative reasons why they shouldn't take responsibility for their driver's actions.

I always try to take time to shed light on these potential tactics because folks shouldn't be left in the dark just because no one bothered to inform of their rights and those out there invested in cheating them out of those rights.
