Dallas Woman Injured in Truck Accident on Bush Turnpike in Garland, TX

Garland, TX -- November 2, 2022, a Dallas woman was injured as the result of an accident where a truck and a van crashed on PGBT.

Investigators said that the incident happened near mile marker 106 of the President George Bush Turnpike at around 8:20 p.m.

A 34-year-old Dallas woman was in a Ford Transit van traveling northbound along the turnpike. While doing so, it appears a Hino truck made an unsafe lane change, causing a collision between the two vehicles. This sent the van driver to the hospital with incapacitating injuries. No others were said to be hurt.

If that's all police found in their investigations, it certainly paints a bad picture for the truck driver who apparently made a mistake. However, I always try to help folks understand that a statement from authorities is rarely the full story.

How fast were the vehicles going? What was visibility like at the time? Was the truck driver a commercial driver? Are they trained properly? Do they have a history of reckless driving? Were any other drivers involved? Did airbags and seatbelts function properly?

I've seen time and time again how one of the most important things victims and families can have after a crash is answers. Did authorities get more answers than what's shown here, or do there need to be more thorough investigations.
