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.

According to Texas officials, a crash along Interstate 20 occurred during the early morning hours. Two of the parties who were involved in that collision purportedly exited their vehicles and were standing in a roadside ditch, presumably waiting for assistance to clear the crash scene. Unfortunately, a tractor trailer driver who was approaching the scene of that earlier collision made the decision to swerve his vehicle off to the side in order to avoid the wrecked vehicles.

Both pedestrians were struck by the large truck. One victim, a 32-year-old man, was killed in the impact. The second victim, a 65-year-old man, suffered critical injuries and was transported for treatment to a nearby medical center. The driver of the truck escaped harm.

Texas police are still conducting an investigation into this fatal tractor-trailer collision, and it is unknown whether the truck driver will face any charges. The family of the deceased victim are devastated by the sudden and tragic loss of their loved one. The surviving victim may face and long and arduous recovery -- provided his injuries do not prove to be too severe to survive. Families who find themselves facing these types of horrific circumstances often must cope with enormous financial losses in addition to the physical and emotional pain they endure. They may choose to seek the guidance of a personal injury attorney who can assist them in filing a successful civil claim in order to obtain compensation to relieve the monetary burdens these tragic events often cause.
