Texas man hit and killed by tractor-trailer off Interstate 20

Traveling the Texas highways often presents many challenges due to heavy traffic and high speeds. In the event that one gets involved in an accident, it can be an especially dangerous time while waiting for assistance to arrive on the scene. Sadly, one man was killed while waiting for help after a tractor-trailer accident in East Texas.

One of the most intimidating aspects of driver's education for a young person is certainly taking that first trip on the interstate. Multiple lanes of traffic moving in the same direction means remaining constantly alert to changes all around. Highway accidents involving unsafe lane changes are among the most common and potentially life-threatening crashes a Texas driver can experience. When an unsafe lane change is attempted by the driver of an 18-wheeler, the threat is even more dangerous.

If the rate of injuries in motor vehicle accidents has fallen, it may be due to the safety features auto manufacturers have added over the years. Air bags, seat belts, anti-lock brakes and shatter-resistant glass are just a few steps in the evolution of car safety. However, none of these features can protect a Texas driver whose car skids under the body of an 18-wheeler.

However, for one biker, these precautions provided little protection from the horrific consequences of an 18-wheeler accident.

Texas 18-wheeler accidents injure motorists, place others at risk

Among the many ways tractor-trailers benefit society is by transporting products to make them available for consumers. Whether these are very large objects, thousands of small ones or hazardous materials, the use of 18-wheelers provides consumers in Texas with a wide variety of useful and necessary items. However, if a truck is involved in an accident, not only may people in other vehicles suffer injuries from the collision, but the materials on a big rig may place the general public at risk.

Truck drivers often spend most of their waking hours behind the wheel. Because of this, it may seem that they forgot the size and weight of their vehicles and the potential damage those vehicles may do in an accident.

Unfortunately, such accidents seem to be happening with more frequency despite increasing federal safety regulations for the trucking industry. The tragic fact is that many 18-wheeler accidents that result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities are often preventable. A recent accident in Texas is still under investigation, but it contains familiar factors.
