Sealy Man Injured in Truck Accident on Highway 36 in Burleson County, TX

Burleson County, TX -- December 9, 2022, a Sealy man was injured due to an accident where a truck and a van collided with a cow on Highway 36.

Investigators said that the incident happened at around 8:02 p.m. along Highway 36 in the area of Private Road 1007.

Preliminary details indicate that a 48-year-old Sealy man was in a commercial truck traveling southbound on Highway 36. A Toyota van was said to be northbound. Those vehicles crashed into a cow which was apparently crossing the highway, causing the 18-wheeler to veer off-road and overturn.

These situations can seem challenging since this sort of thing isn't exactly common. But it's common enough in Texas that there are laws to consider. Generally speaking, animals are going to cause problems sometimes. There's only so much livestock owners can do to stop an animal from doing animal things. But if investigations show, for example, that an owner left their gate open, failed to mend a broken fence line, or otherwise negligently allowed their animal to get out onto the highway, they may be responsible for happens as a result, depending on the circumstances. So how exactly did this cow get onto the road here? I'd say a man nearly killed while trying to support his family is reason enough to get some answers, at least.
