Man Injured in Truck Accident on Hopper Road in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX -- December 2, 2022, a man was injured following an accident where a vehicle and a semi-truck crashed.
Authorities said that the incident happened at around 6:45 a.m. along Hopper Road off the corner of Seven Mile Lane.
According to details from officials, a 22-year-old man was in a Chevy Cruze traveling northbound on Seven Mile. At Hopper Road, the Chevy went through the intersection and hit the side of a truck going eastbound.
The Chevy driver had injuries said to be incapacitating. The truck driver had no reported injuries. There is no current confirmation on what happened here. Police say both drivers claimed not to have a red light. It's always frustrating when there aren't clear answers, and a situation coming down to "he said, she said" is far from ideal. But continuing efforts to ensure there are thorough investigations can still reveal important evidence authorities may have overlooked.
Not that long ago, I had a situation where two drivers blamed the other, and the investigating officer was swamped with other responsibilities. He basically just threw up his hands and told the people, "Good luck." Not long after we got to work, though, we found surveillance video from a nearby business that completely cleared things up. Perhaps there are similar details waiting to be found here.
