Truck Accident Leaves One Paramedic Dead and One Injured

Tyler Paper has reported that a fatal truck accident took place just north of Greenville, Texas, on U.S. Highway 69. 

At about 6:55 p.m., a staff sergeant at the Texas Department of Public Safety, Kyle Bradford, received a call that a UT Health EMS ambulance hit the trailer of a rock hauler truck. The Peterbilt rock-hauler truck was said to be backing across two lanes of traffic when the ambulance was unable to avoid colliding with its trailer. The ambulance driver was pronounced dead at the scene while another EMS personnel member was taken to the hospital for treatment. The driver of the 18-wheeler was unharmed. 

The truck accident is still being investigated, but Bradford reported a citation for the truck.

Who Can Be Held Liable After A Truck Accident?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan, an experienced truck accident lawyer, represents victims injured or killed in 18 wheeler truck accidents. Below, Marc shared his insight into the legal options available to victims injured in commercial truck accidents

"Auto accidents, in general, can be traumatizing to both parties. Tractor-trailers, semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, and commercial vehicles can cause catastrophic damage to other vehicles, as well as themselves. Sadly, truck-related accidents are becoming more common as more trucks hit the roads. Commercial trucking companies and their drivers need to ensure that the vehicle is functioning correctly and operates safely. Without these precautions, they can be found liable for injuries or deaths caused to those around them."

"It can be a daunting task to determine who is liable and who may be sued after a truck accident. However, negligence is the foundation for many truck accident cases. Whether the truck driver was negligent in following proper operating procedures or if the truck's maintenance was neglected, a third party may be held accountable for negligent acts. An experienced truck accident lawyer can help victims and families file a civil lawsuit for compensation for the many damages resulting from the accident."
