UPDATE (March 7, 2023): Further details show that a 18-year-old Madison Merrick of McAlester, Oklahoma was one of the injured victims. Merrick was said to have incapacitating injuries due to the crash. Other injuries were said to be less serious. Details about the cause of the crash remain unconfirmed.

Martin County, TX -- February 9, 2023, Brianna Lexa Limas was killed after an accident where her vehicle and a semi-truck collided.

Investigators said that the crash happened north of Midland along Highway 349 late Thursday. It appears that Brianna Limas was in a Buick going northbound on the highway. It appears that an oncoming semi-truck went into northbound lanes, crashing into Limas's vehicle and several others.

Due to the crash, Limas sustained fatal injuries. At least three others had unspecified injuries. Right now, additional details are unavailable.

While it's not entirely clear what caused this crash, a semi-truck doesn't just run into oncoming traffic for no reason. The most likely and most infuriating scenario to consider is that the truck driver did something wrong, and a young woman was taken from her loved ones. That could very well be what happened here, as well.

Is it possible this was some unavoidable accident? Certainly, as things like road hazards, medical emergencies, tire blowouts, and manufacturing defects are possible, however unlikely they may be. But the simple reason that investigators typically start with things like cell phone records, ECM data, hours of service logs, and maintenance records is because this sort of crash is almost always avoidable.

Despite helping countless families involved in accidents similar to the one described here, it doesn't get any easier hearing about such devastating accidents. All I know is the importance of getting those families the answers they deserve and ensuring they know those responsible are facing the appropriate consequences. Hopefully authorities have already taken steps to see that happens here.
