The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified as 48-year-old Vladimir Cruz Soris. 

A passenger in the semi-truck was transported to University Medical Center in Lubbock. 

No injuries were reported from the parked semi-truck.

Texas Truck Accident Attorneys

An investigation into this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a semi-truck crashed into another semi-truck. Because a commercial truck erupted in flames as a result of the accident, the driver of the semi-truck that caused the accident, and the trucking company, may be liable for any damages brought forth upon the motorist.

The elements of liability, damages, and the ability to pay are critical in determining the value of a case or claim. Without all three elements, a case has little to no value given the nature of our legal system.
