Crash Involving 4 Semi-Trucks On I-10 Kills At Least 1

CULBERSON COUNTY, Texas At least one person died Feb. 3 in a tragic crash about 17 miles east of Van Horn on Interstate 10.

Authorities said the accident involved four tractor-trailers and one passenger vehicle, though they have not released further details about how the accident occurred.

According to the local sheriff's department, road conditions in the area were poor at the time of the crash. Authorities advised residents to avoid traveling on the roadways due to ice.

No further details were immediately available.

Commentary on the Fatal 18-Wheeler Accident Near Van Horn

fatal semi-accident outside van horn texasOfficials always advise people to avoid traveling when ice accumulates on roads, which is undoubtedly good advice. However, many people cannot stay home from work, school, and the other daily responsibilities they carry.

Unfortunately, crashes on icy freeways often result in severe injury and death. Auto manufacturers have a duty to design vehicles that protect occupants by preventing or minimizing injury and death in the event of a crash, including in the frontal and rear collisions often seen in pileups like these.

I hope the drivers and passengers involved in these accidents, and others that occurred on icy roads around Texas, are healthy and safe. If injured, it is important to have the crash thoroughly investigated to determine what caused them harm. If a defective tire or defectively designed vehicle is involved, the manufacturer needs to be held accountable by seasoned professionals in this area of law.
