Bell County, TX (4/6/2021) – A woman was killed after being hit by an 18-wheeler early Tuesday afternoon.

Jose Adame Killed in Big Rig Accident

The accident happened around 12:20 p.m. on FM 93 at State Highway 95, just north of Little River-Academy.

A pickup truck driven by 27-year-old Franchesca Meghan Novick was headed north when she failed to yield at a stop sign and was then struck by an 18-wheeler.

Novick was taken to a hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.

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

Failure to Yield Accidents

Failure to yield is among the leading cause of roadway accidents in Texas. Some drivers simply fail to give their full attention while driving, and others consider themselves above the law. Regardless of why the failure occurred, everyone is obligated to yield the right-of-way by following official traffic signs and signals and adhering to the rules of the road.
