David Butler Killed, 1 Injured in Alvarado, TX Semi-truck Accident

Alvarado, TX -- September 12, 2018, David Butler died and another person was injured in an accident involving a semi truck.

The events under investigation occurred just before 5 am at the intersection of U.S. Route 67 and County Road 209.

The specific nature of those events has not yet been established, but it involved a side impact between the 18-wheeler and Mr. Butler's 4-door passenger vehicle, which caused severe damage to the latter.

First responders discovered Mr. Butler deceased at the scene. The tractor-trailer's driver was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Commentary

Given that, according to current reports, this accident happened near an intersection, and it was a side impact, it's quite likely the accident happened when one of the vehicles was in the course of making a turn when they collided. This means that responsibility will likely come down to who is determined to have had the right of way as that turn was taking place, which is something best determined by an investigator experienced in looking into crashes involving commercial vehicles.
