Truck Accidents in Texas
Truck accidents can be incredibly devastating. Each year, thousands of people in Texas are left with serious injuries as a result of these accidents. One of the most serious types of truck accidents is the T-boned accident. There are many factors that contribute to these crashes, but some of the most common include:
- Distracted driving: there are many cases where truck drivers are using their cell phones or other devices while behind the wheel. As a result, they may run through stop signs and crash into the sides of other vehicles.
- Impaired driving: Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can also lead to devastating accidents. Regrettably, drivers who are impaired often run stop signs at intersections and cause serious T-bone accidents.
- Speeding: Speed is a major factor in many truck accidents that we see here in Texas, including T-bone truck crashes. When drivers are speeding, they may not be able to stop at stop signs and intersections, leading to serious T-bone collisions.
