Woman Seriously Injured after 18-Wheeler Wreck on Sam Houston Tollway

Woman's arm amputated in crash with 18-wheeler on Sam

Pearland, TX (5/18/2020) – A woman has lost her arm after an overnight crash involving an 18-wheeler in Pearland, Texas.

The accident happened in the westbound lanes of South Sam Houston Parkway East near Cullen. After the wreck, the woman was rushed to Ben Taub Hospital via ambulance with an amputated arm.

The main westbound lanes were closed after the crash but vehicles were able to pass in the right pay toll lanes.

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 roads, there are various commercial trucks that travel on a daily and nightly basis. 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.

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.
