The impact of a big rig is much greater than a standard motor vehicle.  Therefore, the severity of an injury may vary based on the accident. In the case above, an 18-wheeler, which usually weighs around 40 tons, struck and killed a pedestrian while driving on Interstate 35 in Austin.

Too often do we hear of incidents that occur of pedestrians suffering unlikely injuries. Whether it be from the weather, dark roads, or distracted driving, pedestrian accidents are all too common and could be reduced if drivers stayed alert on the road.
