Two Women Injured in Cooke County Multi-Vehicle Crash on I-35 near Lone Oak Road
Cooke County, Texas (July 1, 2020) – Two women were injured in a multi-vehicle crash Monday afternoon in southern Cooke County, according to the Texas Highway Patrol.
The crash occurred around 4:50 p.m., June 29, on Interstate 35 near Lone Oak Road.
DPS said a pickup with a trailer hauling plywood lost some of its wood at a curve on the highway, and people stopped to get the wood, slowing traffic.
A semi-truck towing a trailer came around the corner and struck several vehicles, including a Ford Fiesta.
The Ford driver, a 31-year-old Sanger woman, and her passenger, a 39-year-old woman from The Colony, were taken to Medical City Denton for treatment.
The driver was listed in stable condition while the passenger was listed in critical condition.
The semi-truck driver, a 46-year-old man from Arapaho, Oklahoma, was cited for failure to control speed.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
We hope the injured victims recover quickly.
Commercial trucks are known to cause over 90% of accidents in Houston. These truck drivers must understand that their actions majorly contribute to most of the accidents on the roads. It is also important for others on the same roads with truck drivers to understand that maximum precaution should be taken while driving near trucks. While small mistakes like ignoring the turn signal prior to turning may cause accidents, major causes of these accidents are rooted in other factors like exhaustion on the part of truck drivers. If the reasons for the crash are anchored to the failure of following the right turn or driving at a speed that is not legally recommended, a personal injury lawyer will be useful in such scenarios.
If you have been injured in an accident with a huge truck, it is advisable to get a lawyer who will facilitate the process of compensation.
