David Lopez Killed in Truck Accident in Iowa County, TX

Brazoria County, TX — October 28, 2023, David Lopez was killed as the result of a semi-truck accident at around 6:30 a.m. along Highway 6.

Preliminary statements from officials say that the crash took place in the area of Highway 6 and Louisiana Street.

Authorities said that 31-year-old David Lopez was in a Nissan Pathfinder traveling eastbound along the highway. Up ahead, authorities say that an 18-wheeler slowed, possibly in the wrong lane, to attempt a u-turn. Before it did so, however, the Nissan crashed into the back of the trailer.

David Lopez died as a result of the collision. There were no other reported injuries due to the crash. Right now, no further details can be confirmed. I'm wondering if police are working to clarify what exactly the truck was doing leading up to the collision and what role those actions may have played in the crash.

Reasonably prudent truckers understand the danger their massive vehicles can impose, and they train how to drive cautiously to minimize that danger as much as possible. That's why I doubt I would ever hear about one of the reputable truckers I've known slowing down in the wrong lane to make a u-turn when they likely could have found somewhere safe to turn around instead.

This all is just one aspect of a thorough investigation, of course, and I'm not suggesting there aren't other possible contributing factors to consider. But if the speculation from authorities about this truck driver's actions prove to be true, then why was it the driver decided the middle of a dark road was an appropriate place to attempt this (likely avoidable) maneuver?
