One Injured in Truck Accident on North Dowling Rd. in Brazos County, TX

Brazos County, TX — August 14, 2023, one person was injured in a collision with a commercial truck around 12:45 p.m. on North Dowling Rd. in Brazos County.

Authorities report a 22-year-old pedestrian was dragged by a rope behind a Peterbilt tractor in a construction zone. The details of how the crash occurred are unclear.

According to investigators, the pedestrian had a rope tied around his waist and was on the southwestern corner of the intersection of Junction Boys Rd. and N. Dowling Rd. several feet away from Junction Boys Rd. The same rope around his wait seems to have stretched from north to south across the Junction Boys Rd. and was reportedly being pulled through a pulley.

Sources say the Peterbilt was traveling east on Junction Boys Rd. and attempted a left-hand turn to travel north on N. Dowling Road. The rope that was stretched across the roadway reportedly caught on the semi-truck's vertical exhaust and its clearance lights. As the rope was tied around the pedestrian's wait, the 22-year-old was purportedly pulled across the ground and forced into a collision with a utility pole and box.

The semi-truck pulled off to the east side of N. Dowling Rd. and the victim was purportedly taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

Authorities have not released any other details at this time.
