Amarillo, TX (12/17/2020) – Four people were sent to the hospital after a semi-truck hit a pickup in Amarillo.
The accident happened on Jack Rabbit Road near U.S. 287. A pickup was headed north on Jack Rabbit Road and merged onto the highway when he pulled out in front of a semi-truck headed east on 287.
The pickup was then hit on the side by the semi-truck.
Four people were taken to the hospital. One patient’s injuries are considered life-threatening.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
With any Texas city, there are various commercial trucks on the road. While sometimes careful, they sometimes result in fatal crashes. A standard semi-truck weighs an average of 4,000 pounds while a large vehicle can weigh up to 80,000 pounds.
Because of the nature of their size, weight, and force, getting involved in an 18-wheeler accident can result in thousands in damages. It can result in pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of wages due to the extensive care replacing your workload.
