One Killed, One Injured in Truck Accident on I-10 in Kendall County, TX

Kendall County, TX -- February 22, 2023, one person was killed and another person was injured after a truck accident.

Authorities said that the incident happened at around 6:50 a.m. along I-10 near mile marker 526. According to officials, a 62-year-old Indio, California man was driving a Chevy Suburban westbound along I-10. Somehow, the vehicle crashed into an 18-wheeler that was stopped on the shoulder due to a mechanical issue.

Kendall County, TX Truck Accident Kills 1, Injures 1 on I-10

The California man had incapacitating injuries while a 20-year-old man in the Chevy was killed. Right now, additional details about the crash are still under investigation.

I can't confirm what happened here right now, but something in the initial details I rarely see get attention is the parked 18-wheeler. To be clear, I have no particular information about the truck involved in this awful event. But when put under more scrutiny, evidence in crashes similar to this one have often shown a truck driver either did not park their vehicle properly and safely along the highway or that the reason they had to stop was something entirely avoidable, such as poor maintenance or running out of gas.

Maybe that wasn't a factor here, and of course it would be one factor of many worth attention even if it was a factor. But it's something the public rarely gets to hear about, so I hope this crash can at least encourage people to learn more about the law and what those laws may mean for people involved in serious truck wrecks.
