Handy Rose Killed in 18-wheeler Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX — November 6, 2023, Handy Rose was killed following an 18-wheeler accident at around 6:30 a.m. along Crosby Lynchburg Road.
Authorities say in preliminary statements that the crash occurred in the area of the Crosby-Lynchburg Road (F.M. 2100) and Floyd intersection, which is south of Barrett.
According to officials, Handy Rose was in a Toyota Corolla which was said to be going southbound on Crosby Lynchburg. From a private driver, it's said that a tractor-trailer made a left turn to go northbound on Crosby Lynchburg. This resulted in Rose's vehicle crashed into the truck.
Rose sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision. There were no other reported injuries. Right now, there is no mention of possible charges or citations as investigations are ongoing.
If everything I'm seeing right now is accurate, I can't help wondering what authorities are looking into right now and what next steps they may take. I've only seen them say they don't think intoxicated driving was a factor here, but that's not even one of the more common factors in a crash like this.
If the images of this stretch of road I've found online are up to date and accurate for where this crash happened, it seems unlikely that a driver making a left turn from a private drive on this road into the path of an approaching vehicle could do so without failing to yield. Perhaps there are extenuating circumstances authorities haven't made clear that would make this incident the rare exception, but is there a reason they haven't made any kind of indication of fault or pending consequences?
