New Braunfels Man, 3 Injured in Truck Accident on FM 2688 in Dimmit County, TX
Dimmit County, TX — March 15, 2023, a New Braunfels man and three others were possibly injured due to an accident where two trucks collided.
Preliminary details about the crash said that the incident happened before 4:30 a.m. in the area of FM 2688 mile post 578. Authorities said that a 38-year-old New Braunfels man was in a Dodge Ram 2500 pulling a trailer along eastbound lanes of FM 2688. For reasons unclear, the truck somehow crashed into the back of a Kenworth truck.
Due to the collision, a 36-year-old passenger in the Dodge had incapacitating injuries. Both drivers and a third person in the Dodge were in unspecified conditions. The cause of the crash isn't clear at this time, but details do say the incident happened at a temporary traffic light where there was construction. Is that a factor authorities looked into? Did the light work properly? Was it clearly visible? It may seem more likely that a driver's mistake led to the crash, that's understandable. But it's important that alternative explanations at least get attention to either rule them out or otherwise confirm them. Doing so can be vital in getting people the help they deserve.
