Texas Department of Public Safety officials are conducting an investigation about a collision involving a semi-truck on State Highway 64, Tuesday afternoon.
According to initial reports, the incident took place at around 2:00 p.m. on Texas 62 near Farm to Market Road 2802. A preliminary investigation shows that a semi-truck was seen traveling along the highway when, for reasons that had not been determined yet, it went out of control and rolled over a number of times. The impact of the collision left the driver with unknown injuries. He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital where he received proper medical treatment. His identification will be released after his immediate family has been notified.
No one else was injured.
The Orange Police Department arrived at the scene to determine the reason why the driver of the semi-truck lost control of the vehicle. The investigation continues.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the injured victim. We are hoping and praying for their fast recovery.
Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person gets injured in approximately two minutes. Unfortunately, despite the government’s aggressive efforts to educate drivers about safety, the cases of speeding, driving under the influence, and negligence are still on the rise. In fact, most of the common causes of accidents in the state are due to the driver’s lack of awareness and precaution.
Knowing the statistics helps us to be more aware of how our choices can affect other people’s lives. For instance, driving while under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs dramatically increases your risk of being involved in a crash by roughly 16% and 24%, respectively. While these cases are extremely dangerous, these can be prevented by making the right decisions. So before hitting the road, know that car accidents leave scars and trauma that can be devastating for the victims
