Amherst Man Injured in 18-wheeler Accident on US 287 in Moore County, TX

Moore County, TX -- January 23, 2023, an Amherst man was injured following an accident where an 18-wheeler hit his vehicle on US 287.

Initial details about the crash said that the incident happened at approximately 3:42 a.m. near mile marker 60. It appears a 32-year-old Amherst man was in a Mazda traveling northbound along the highway. The vehicle apparently came to a stop for unspecified reasons, and police said its lights may have been off at the time. While there, an 18-wheeler hit the Mazda.

The Amherst man sustained incapacitating injuries due to the crash. Right now, additional details are unavailable. If what authorities say here is true, then it's unfortunate that both drivers here were likely victims of circumstances beyond their control. However, it's always important to consider the possibility that the public isn't seeing the whole story.

I had a crash come to me a while ago with initial reports very similar to these. However, our investigations uncovered video evidence from the truck involved which made things far more troubling. It turned out the reason police said the victim's car wasn't clearly visible is because that's what the truck driver told them. The truck's dash cam, however, clearly showed the car with its hazards on. So why didn't the truck driver avoid the collision? He was too busy watching videos on his tablet.

I'm not trying to say that happened here, but they were crucial details the public never got to here. So when people read details like those surrounding this crash, it's okay to hope for the best while also understanding there could be a hell of a lot more to the story. My hope is the authorities handling this understood that and dedicated the time and resources behind the scenes to ensure the family affected by this know they're getting all the facts.
