Kempner Man Injured in Multi-Truck Accident on Highway 115 in Andrews County, TX

Andrews County, TX -- January 8, 2023, a Kempner man was injured after a multi-truck accident along Highway 115.

Authorities said that the incident happened at around 3:00 p.m. along Highway 115 at the intersection of TX 128.

According to officials, a 31-year-old Kempner man was in a Peterbilt truck going eastbound along the highway. At Highway 128, it appears a Ford truck failed to yield, crashing into the Peterbilt and pushing it into an oncoming Volvo semi.

Due to the crash, the Kempner truck driver sustained incapacitating injuries. No other injuries were confirmed. Police recommended citations for failure to yield, but no further information has been released.

If the details here are accurate, I just don't understand how a driver can make a mistake like this. This happened in broad daylight at what seems to be a clear intersection. So why did this crash fail to see the victim's semi? Did they just make a terrible judgment on whether or not they could make the turn quickly enough? Were they distracted? Is there something dangerous about this intersection that locals can shed light on?

I never jump to conclusions, especially without seeing the evidence for myself. But I find it incredibly challenging to come up with a scenario where this happens without the driver that allegedly failed to yield making a stupid and easily avoidable mistake. Is that what happened here?
