Houston 18-Wheeler Accident Closes Freeway

Houston 18-Wheeler Accident Closes Freeway

A Houston, Texas freeway crash closed lanes after an 18-wheeler accident shut down the road for at least 7 ½ hours. Authorities reported that weather conditions caused a driver to spin out. The driver then stopped the vehicle in a moving traffic lane and went to find assistance. The 18-wheeler then hit the empty car while transporting gallons of bleach. Luckily the driver was not in the vehicle at the time of the crash. A heavy-duty wrecker had to report to the scene to help bring the semi upright.

18-wheeler accidents happen across the country each day. Drivers should always remain vigilant when travelling as it is estimated that there are over 2 million of these big rigs on the road. These trucks transport a wide variety of goods across the United States and travel highways, interstates and freeways. The trucks are so large in size that they have several blind spots that make it hard to see other drivers on the road. Drivers should always be weary of passing these trucks because of this reason. Also, tailgating these trucks can cause accidents as well. A big truck does not have a quick reaction time and cannot stop suddenly which can cause a variety of accidents. Anyone hurt in 18-wheeler accidents need to contact a personal injury attorney immediately. A seasoned personal injury attorney will be influential in building a case for the victim and helping them receive compensation for their injuries.
