Christopher Pierre Boulet, 1 Injured in Car Accident in Grayson County, TX

Grayson County, TX — October 24, 2023, Christopher Pierre Boulet and another were injured following a semi-trailer accident at 3:15 p.m. along F.M. 121.

Officials said in initial statements that the crash took place in the area of the F.M. 121 and Farmington Road intersection.

According to current information, 29-year-old Christopher Boulet and another person were in a BMW SUV going eastbound along F.M. 121. From the oncoming lane, it appears that a westbound semi-trailer reportedly hydroplaned while braking for traffic, and the truck went left of center and crashed into Boulet's vehicle.

Due to the collision, both Boulet and the other person in the SUV had apparently incapacitating injuries. There were no other confirmed injuries. Authorities said they recommended a citation for failure to control speed. But that's likely far from the end of the story here. Authorities can blame whoever or whatever they want, but it takes evidence to make sure there's no question about who's responsible for a serious truck accident like this.

Let me give an example about a case these details remind me of. That crash, too, involved a truck which police said was driving too fast for rainy conditions. But when it came time for the company to step up to the plate, they said it was the weather's fault the truck lost control, not the truck driver's behavior during that weather.

As silly as that sounds, even a flimsy defense can find footing when there's no one around contesting it. Fortunately, our accident reconstructionist was thorough, and the report they put together made it clear that there wasn't enough water on the ground to really make all that much of a hazard in the first place, yet still the truck was going fast enough that they lost traction.

It's one thing to disagree with a preliminary report from an officer; it's another thing entirely to try to argue with an experienced professional who investigates complex crash scenes on a daily basis. That's the sort of effort that often goes in to making sure the facts are clear after serious truck wrecks like this. Hopefully steps are already being taken to dig up and preserve the evidence needed to prove exactly how this happened and how it could have been avoided.
