Driver in Critical Condition Following an 18-Wheeler Accident


(June 24, 2022) On Thursday, June 16, 2022, early in the morning, a man collided with the back of an 18-wheeler that was stopped on the side of the highway. The accident was devastating and left the man in critical condition. According to reports, the accident occurred on Interstate 35 North near Eisenhauer Road on the Northeast Side. Police stated the 18-wheeler was waiting on the side of the highway for a tow truck when the truck collided with the back of the semi-truck. When the emergency personnel arrived at the scene, they used the Jaws of Life tool to free the man from the truck. Afterward, the man was hastily taken to the hospital, suffering life-threatening injuries. 

When tragic accidents like this occur, the natural reaction of people converging on the scene is to make sure no one is injured and offer any necessary help. However, this neglects the legal complexity of what just occurred. Aside from checking the collision victim’s physical health, no one is taking notice of what damages are being altered, which insurance company was contacted first, or if any evidence is being tampered with.
