Man Crushed By Moving Big Rig

San Antonio, TX (2/1/2021) – A man is now dead after being run over by an 18-wheeler. 

The incident occurred Monday morning around 9 a.m. on Highway 90 just east of Highway 211. A man was trying to fill up a tire on a piece of construction equipment when the big rig moved and crushed the man underneath its tires.

The man was found run over. 

Investigators believe the man attempted to move out of its path but he fell and the truck ran him over. 

According to deputies, he was not the driver of the big rig. 

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 Attorneys

Any type of motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious and life-changing injuries. However, accidents involving large commercial trucks or 18-wheelers have an especially high risk of resulting in catastrophic or even fatal injuries for many reasons. While it remains to be seen what caused the parked 18-wheeler to run over the man, we do know the man is now dead because of it. 

Pending the results of the investigation, if the semi-truck is seen at-fault and it turns into a case, the process of filing a truck accident claims begins. This consists of filing a claim, negotiations, and ultimately litigation if settlement cannot be obtained. This is why it’s important to choose the right truck accident attorney for the best chance of receiving fair compensation.
