Two Injured in Car Accident on Highway 29 in Liberty Hill, TX

Williamson County, TX — July 31, 2023, two people sustained injuries after a two-vehicle car accident at around 5:50 p.m. along Highway 29.

Authorities said in their statements that the crash happened near the intersection of Highway 29 and Championship Drive.

According to officials, a 52-year-old man was in a Toyota Camry which was said to be going westbound along the highway. In eastbound lanes, a Chevy van apparently lost control, ran across the center turn lane, and crashed into the Camry.

As a result of the collision, the Toyota driver had apparently incapacitating injuries. The Chevy driver, a 33-year-old man, had reportedly non-incapacitating injuries. The cause of the crash is not officially confirmed, but authorities said the van driver admitted to taking their eyes off the road to grab a scheduling book. However, details also suggest a possible steering defect with the van. Where did they get that detail? Hopefully, it's just a sign authorities are being thorough.

With the type of van reportedly involved here and the driver allegedly reaching for a "scheduling book," it seems very likely this van is a work vehicle. Investigating the mechanical condition of any vehicle is important after a crash, but the maintenance of commercial vehicles often involves multiple parties. It could be that the employer is responsible for the maintenance, and perhaps it's supposed to be regularly serviced by an auto repair shop. Both of those businesses and the driver, then, would have to be investigated if investigations found out that a vehicle involved in a crash had a serious issue due to a lack of maintenance.

Maybe that isn't what happened here, and perhaps whatever led authorities to include the possibility of a steering issue won't end up being anywhere near as serious as the van driver allegedly taking their eyes off the road. But again, it's good when investigations are thorough, and that details could mean authorities are taking the crash seriously.
