Rochelle Robertson Killed in Commercial Truck Accident in West, TX

West, TX — January 31, 2023, Rochelle Robertson was killed in a multi-vehicle accident on I-35 around 6:50 p.m. in West.

Authorities report that Rochelle Roberston was killed in a multi-vehicle accident. Investigators believe that a 2023 Kenworth commercial truck and Rochelle Robertson, in a Kia Forte, had pulled into the right shoulder of I-35 due to a previous accident when a 2022 Dodge Ram pulling a trailer and a 2000 Peterbilt commercial truck traveling in the middle lane approached the two stopped.

Reports indicate that as the 2022 Dodge Ram then slowed down, the 2000 Peterbilt truck attempted to merge into the right lane in an evasive maneuver. Reportedly, the 2000 Peterbilt clipped the back passenger side of the 2022 Dodge Ram's trailer, lost control of the truck, and struck Rochelle Robertson's Kia.

Rochelle Robert was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

According to reports, there were icy conditions on the highway at the time of the accident.

Obviously, more investigation is necessary to learn the whole story about both collisions, but unless something highly unusual happened, it seems like the 2000 Peterbilt truck driver screwed up. But how?

When investigators look more closely into the wreck, what will they find? Was the trucker in too much of a hurry to slow down appropriately? Did the driver somehow not notice the Dodge Ram ahead? If not, why not? Was the driver awake, alert, and watching the road? Were they inadequately trained or inexperienced? Were there abnormal circumstances that the driver truly had no control over? What do the vehicle dash cameras or cab cameras show in the moments leading up to the wreck?

All of these questions must be answered through a thorough investigation conducted by crash experts.
