How Often Do Semi-Truck & Train Collisions Occur in Texas?
Train and vehicle collisions – including those that involve semi-trucks – happen more often than anyone would like in Texas.
This year alone, there have been multiple accidents involving 18-wheelers and trains, including:
- February 2021: A freight train carrying coal and gasoline collided with a tractor-trailer that ran a railroad crossing Cameron, Texas setting off a fiery explosion.
- May 2021: A semi-truck with a load of water bottles was split in half by a train in Richmond, Texas.
- June 2021: The train collided with the semi-truck after it got stuck on the railroad tracks in Moody, Texas.
- July 2021: A train collided with a semi-truck in Ada, Texas, where the initial impact caused the truck to hit another car and that car hit another vehicle.
The size, weight, and force of both the train and the semi-trucks in these collisions can cause catastrophic injuries and fatalities to other motorists who are sharing the roadways with the 18-wheelers. When these crashes occur, the injured parties should not have to pay for their damages out of pocket. Our experienced truck accident attorneys will take the lead in your case to determine which party – or combined parties – is at fault for your injuries, so together we can pursue their insurance coverage for your full financial recovery.
