Three Injured in Truck Accident on N. Americas Rd. in El Paso, TX

El Paso, TX — August 11, 2023, three people were injured in a multi-vehicle truck accident around 2:20 p.m. on N. Americas Rd. in El Paso.

According to sources, a Freightliner semi-truck was traveling south along the one-way road, N. Americas Rd. in the right-side lane when the truck failed to slow down with the traffic and caused a chain-reaction crash.

Officials report the Freightliner rear-ended a white BMW, which then rear-ended a Ford Fusion. The Ford Fusion's driver reportedly performed an evasive maneuver, directed their vehicle into the left-side lane, and successfully avoided any further collision. However, the momentum of the Freightliner purportedly forced the BMW to rear-end a Ford Ranger. Investigators say no other vehicles were involved.

The 35-year-old driver of the BMW was reportedly taken to a medical center with serious injuries. Officials report the driver of the Ford Fusion suffered minor injuries and the passenger of the Fusion had possible injuries. The Ford Ranger driver and the Freightliner driver were purportedly uninjured.

Police recommended charging the semi-truck driver with "Failure to control speed causing an accident."

Authorities have not released any other details at this time.
