Amarillo, Texas (March 7, 2023) – A fatal car accident on I-40 claimed the life of a 20-year-old woman early Monday morning.
Officials from the Department of Public Safety have identified Madison Mangum, a 20-year-old from Borger, as the victim of the accident.
Mangum’s pickup became disabled along the centerline of westbound I-40 after rear-ending a rental truck. A large tractor truck that was pulling a load of 3 other truck tractors then struck Mangum’s vehicle as she was in the roadway.
The driver of the truck struck her passenger side. The collision ejected Mangum from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The other driver was taken to Northwest Texas Hospital and has since been released.

Roadside accidents are fatal types of accidents that can result from several scenarios. A negligent driver may not have noticed your parked car on the road’s shoulder and sideswiped it or completely rear-ended you. Similarly, and much more catastrophic, a driver may not see you outside your disabled car and hit you. A careless driver may also be swerving between lanes, causing them to hit your vehicle.
