Fort Worth Woman Injured in Truck Accident on FM 730 in Azle, TX
Azle, TX -- January 4, 2023, a Fort Worth woman was injured following an accident where a vehicle and a semi-truck crashed along FM 730.
Preliminary public details provided by authorities say that the crash happened at around 4:18 p.m. along FM 730 at the intersection of Sandy Beach Road. The details say that a 63-year-old Fort Worth woman was in a Honda HR-V traveling westbound on Sandy Beach Road. At the FM 730 light, police said that a northbound semi-truck ran a red light and crashed into the Honda.
The woman in the Honda sustained injuries said to be incapacitating. The truck driver wasn't hurt. While police seemed to clearly state the truck ran a red light, they also suggested there's a possibility that the victim wasn't being attentive. I want to be clear that I don't know any information about this crash than what's already publicly available. But when I put a claim like that in context of crashes I've looked into with similar details, I can't help wondering if authorities are just speculating.
Frankly, when a truck driver runs a red light, it's highly unlikely that the facts will ultimately show they weren't entirely to blame for the crash. It's obviously important to be thorough and consider the actions of victims, as well. But vague "possible" allegations only creates more ammo for the insurance companies to muddy the waters and obstruct victims and families who deserve to know the facts they're getting are clear and based on evidence. What I'm seeing here doesn't exactly inspire confidence that's happening.
