Adam Allen Injured in Truck Accident in Tyler, TX

Tyler, TX -- February 28, 2023, Adam Allen was injured after an accident where Allen's vehicle crashed with a semi-trailer.

Authorities said that the incident happened just after 10:00 a.m. along US Highway 69 off the corner of Sexton Road.

According to initial reports, 46-year-old Adam Allen was in a Honda Pilot going northbound on the highway. Ahead, authorities allege that a tractor-trailer was backing without safety into a private drive. Allen's vehicle crashed into the side of the trailer.

Due to the collision, Allen reportedly had incapacitating injuries. No others were said to be injured. The investigating officer recommended there be a charge for backing without safety. No further information can be confirmed at this time.

There's a damn good reason that charges like the one mentioned here are on the books. 18-wheelers can be nearly 40 tons, and the trailers are often at a perfect height to kill or seriously harm drivers that hit them. Reasonably prudent truck drivers know the amount of responsibility entrusted to them when they get behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer, and they take it seriously.

That's why putting them across a highway is outright dangerous even in situations where it may be legal. Just about every responsible truck driver I've ever known avoids this kind of maneuver whenever possible. Even when that's not avoidable, though, they take precautions to help ensure there is ample warning for approaching motorists, such as co-workers in the road with high visibility equipment flagging down traffic.

Right now, I don't see any kind of information about precautions the truck driver here may or may not have taken. Perhaps there's more to the story, but I don't often see authorities recommend charges like these unless they feel that driver screwed up pretty badly. I wonder if the evidence will show that this is one of those situations.
