Stratford, TX (7/1/2020) – A man is now dead after a three-vehicle wreck occurred Monday night.

The accident happened around 11:30 p.m. Miguel Salazar-Ramos, 39, was driving on US 287 in his Kenworth truck towing a semi-trailer. Salazar-Ramos attempted to pass Jesse Perry, 62, who was driving a Volvo truck tractor towing a semi-trailer. According to Texas DPS, Salazar-Ramos failed to pass to the left safely and struck 59-year-old Thomas Ellston who was riding a motorcycle. Ellston’s motorcycle then spun around, exploded and struck Perry’s semi-trailer.

Ellston was killed at the scene.

Everyone else was not injured.

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

Truck Accident Attorneys

After a trucking accident, some people wait too long to talk to an attorney. What people don’t realize is that the trucking company and insurance company are not waiting around to gather evidence. Trucking companies and insurance companies regularly send investigators to the scene of the accident on the day of the collision to gather evidence to try to diminish the value of a claim.

It’s important to remain protected at all costs. To contact an aggressive, qualified 18-wheeler accident attorney at our firm, we invite you to email us or text or call our office, Sutliff & Stout, anytime at 713-987-7111.
