Stephen McFaull Killed in Truck Accident in Milam County, TX
Milam County, TX -- January 11, 2023, Stephen McFaull was killed after an accident where a semi-truck and a Ford pickup collided.
Details given by authorities said that the accident happened at around 2:25 p.m. along US 77 at the intersection of CR-230A.
It appears that 93-year-old Stephen McFaull was in a Ford F-350 traveling along CR-230A. When pulling through the crossing, a Kenworth semi-truck crashed into McFaull's vehicle. Due to the collision, McFaull succumbed to fatal injuries.
Right now, no details can be officially confirmed. It's important that folks keep that in mind after crashes like this. Early reports, even when they seem straight-forward, rarely tell the whole story. Maybe nothing unusual happened here, but folks should let the evidence speak for itself.
For example, these details remind me of a crash I was looking into not long ago where p[olice say a man ran a stop sign, causing a fatal crash. Weeks after the initial investigations, more thorough investigations from experienced accident reconstructionists revealed there was no stop sign at the time of the crash because TxDOT removed it while working but forgot to put it back.
Now, I'm not trying to speculate that something like that happened here. But imagine if authorities in that situation just ran with what they thought was the most likely explanation for the crash. That family may never have learned the truth about what happened. In my experience, it's best to treat all deadly wrecks with this level of care, and I see no reason to consider this crash an exception.
