Truck Crashes into Power Pole on Loop 323, Driver Injured in Tyler, TX

Tyler, TX — January 17, 2023, a truck driver was hospitalized after a big rig crashed into a power pole on Loop 323 in Tyler.

Authorities say the incident happened around 12:20 p.m. at the intersection of Loop 323 and McDonald Road. The cause and circumstances of the wreck aren't clear yet, but reports suggest an 18-wheeler ran off the road at the intersection and crashed into a power pole. The impact knocked some power lines down into the roadway.

The truck driver was transported to a local hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

There's no telling exactly what happened here yet, but that's not unusual so soon after a wreck. Investigators still have a lot of work to do to get whole story—interview the victim, locate any witnesses and take statements, look for forensic evidence at the scene, closely examine the truck for any signs of failures or defects, check its dashcam footage, and a great many other steps. All that careful detection is usually necessary to learn the truth of any wreck, and one involving a commercial truck is about as complicated as they get.

At the end of the day someone went to a hospital because of what happened in Tyler, and I'd argue that's more than enough reason to find out exactly what put him there. Hopefully authorities and the company behind that trucks can find clear answers for the victim and his loved ones. That's the most important thing, and any other steps might depend on what those answers are.
