Hillsboro Woman Injured in Truck Accident on I-35 in McLennan County, TX
McLennan County, TX -- January 25, 2023, a Hillsboro woman was injured following an accident on I-35 involving a tractor-trailer.
Authorities said that the incident happened at around 12:20 p.m. along I-35 near mile marker 344. Details said that a 33-year-old Hillsboro woman was in a Ford Five Hundred traveling southbound on the interstate. It appears the woman was attempting to change lanes when a collision happened with the Ford and a tractor-trailer, causing the Ford to then hit the median barrier. A Ford Bronco was also involved in the crash.
The Hillsboro woman had injuries described as incapacitating following the crash. No one else appeared to be hurt. At this time, no further information has been confirmed.
I certainly have no reason to doubt what I'm seeing here, but I always take preliminary details with a grain of salt. There's no telling what authorities may have overlooked. One point of concern, for example, is the victim apparently having significant injuries. There are times where that leads to them being taken from the scene before police can speak to them.
While officers typically follow up later on to get that person's side of the story, they sometimes finalize their findings without that follow up. As a result, details like these sometimes only show one side of the story, and it isn't even the person who was hurt. I can only hope authorities here were prudent enough not to make such an avoidable mistake.
