Man Killed in Semi-Truck Accident on I-35 in Denton, TX

Denton, TX -- December 12, 2022, a man was killed due to an accident where a semi-truck and a car collided along I-35.

Preliminary details given by authorities put the crash along southbound lanes near mile marker 472, which appears to be near the exit for Ganzer Road, at around 7:41 p.m. Investigators said a man was in a Kia Forte traveling southbound on I-35. For reasons currently unclear, the vehicle crashed into the back of an 18-wheeler and caught fire.

Due to the collision, the man driving the Kia sustained fatal injuries. Reports did not mention anyone else being injured, and they did not give additional details about the crash. Some folks may not think there's much to know when it comes to rear-end collisions, but that's only because there's the all too popular misconception that someone is automatically at fault when they rear-end someone. That's just not true.

Did the driver experience some kind of medical emergency? Did they have faulty brakes or tires? What was visibility like at the time? How fast was the truck going? Were there other vehicles involved that left the scene? Did the trailer's lights work properly? Was the 18-wheeler changing lanes or merging? Was the victim trying to avoid something in the road?

If authorities aren't answering these questions, then chances are they're not getting the full story. I can't imagine how I would feel if I lost a loved one, and people in the public just immediately blamed them without a second thought. That's why I try to encourage as many people as possible to avoid that kind of behavior and let the evidence speak for itself, if only so an already grieving family doesn't have to see such insensitive foolishness.
