Four Texas Truck Accidents Last Week

A series of Texas truck accidents occurred on the state’s highways last week, including a fatal wreck near Lubbock. An 18 wheeler and a box truck collided on Interstate 20 just east of Dallas. A tractor-trailer struck a minivan just south of McAllen near the U.S.-Mexico border. Another Texas truck accident closed down the southbound lanes of U.S. 59 near Cleveland in East Texas. The Lubbock accident involved a passenger car in a head-on collision with a semi.

Dallas Texas Truck Accident

A Texas truck accident involving a box truck and an 18 wheeler happened during the Wednesday evening rush hour. The collision occurred in the westbound lanes of Interstate 20 near the border between Kaufman and Van Zandt counties east of Dallas. Authorities reported that the box truck rear-ended the 18 wheeler. Local sources stated that the box truck driver was pinned in his cab. The extraction process took nearly 45 minutes, after which both drivers in the Texas truck accident were transported by CareFlite helicopter to Methodist Dallas Medical Center.


Pharr Texas Truck Accident

At the other end of the state, another Texas truck accident closed down traffic for several miles. The accident occurred on U.S. Expressway 83 near the interchange with U.S. 281 in Pharr, just nine miles north of the Mexican border. A witness to the Texas truck accident told local reporters that he heard a “loud crunching noise and saw the truck shift lanes” when it struck a minivan. The witness said that the truck driver attempted to avoid another driver who cut him off, but collided with the minivan. Despite extensive damage to the vehicle, only two passengers in the minivan sustained minor injuries.
