The accident happened near Moore Road when a car pulled out in front of an 18-wheeler. 

The tractor trailer overturned, spilling cases of beer. A pickup truck towing a boat then hit the front axle of the tractor. 

The pickup truck driver was pinned in the cab and was taken to the hospital for treatment. 

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Truck Accident Lawyers 

According to Texas Law, drivers have a responsibility to drive with caution and care everywhere they go. This is called Due Care. When drivers exercise reckless behavior, such as the case above, the consequences are deadly. Pulling out in front of a dangerous vehicle, such as an 18-wheeler, is a risky action. 

Truck accidents are scary situations for any motorist; averaging a weight of 40 tons, 18-wheelers can cause great, catastrophic damage if involved in a wreck with another vehicle. Pulling out in front of 18-wheelers should be avoided at all costs, since their ability to brake is slower due to their heavy weight.
