Fatal Traffic Accident On Houston’s Katy Freeway

A traffic accident in the 14800 block of the Katy Freeway, also known as Interstate Highway 10 West, occurred about 12:10 a.m. March 25 between two tractor trailer rigs, leaving one man dead.

A blue International tractor trailer truck, with Tennessee license plates, was traveling westbound on the Katy Freeway when the driver failed to control his speed and struck a white Peterbilt tractor trailer truck, transporting sporting goods.

After being struck in the rear end, the second truck then lost control and flipped onto its side while the first truck, which was transporting hand soap and deodorant, caught fire. The driver of the second 18-wheeler was treated and released at the scene. The male victim of the first truck, age unknown, was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity is pending verification by the Harris County Medical Examiner's Office. The investigation is continuing.

Truck accidents often occur when drivers have been on the road for long periods of time and are not as alert as they might be at the beginning of a run. In the event a trucker does have an accident, there are very few cars that can battle one of the behemoths and win.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
