Hill Country Truck Driver Negligence
The Texas Hill Country is widely regarded as the most beautiful part of the state, enticing drivers from near and far, in-state and out-of-town, to take a road trip to Austin or San Antonio and experience the lush trees and wide rivers so rarely found elsewhere. But an increase in traffic, even a merely temporary one, is a signal to business and landowners that it might be time to develop and expand their holdings in the Hill Country, which means more semi trucks on the roads alongside every other type of vehicle. While the sight of deer, longhorns, or a paintbrush sunset might distract the average driver, Hill Country 18 wheeler accidents caused by negligence are not something to be considered lightly.
Due to the extreme size and weight of commercial trucks, operating one requires extensive training and constant adherence to safety regulations. The consequences of a truck crashing into a small passenger car are typically devastating to those riding in the car. These behaviors apply even more so in the Hill Country, where a prevalence of tight curves and blind hills can make the impact of an 18 wheeler that much more unexpected and severe.
