Cinthya Guerrero Killed in a Semi-Truck Accident on County Road 16 US 60 in Parmer, Texas

Parmer, Texas — A Friona woman lost her life following a crash involving a car and a semi-trailer on US 60.

According to reports, around 6:50 a.m., a 1999 Peterbilt truck tractor was towing a semi-trailer northbound on County Road 17. The truck stopped at a stop sign at the US 60 intersection. At the same time, Cinthya Guerrero was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze westbound on US 60 in the inside lane.

The truck tractor crossed over the eastbound lanes of US 60 and then moved into the crossover in the center median to turn west on US 60. The truck driver failed to yield the right of way and entered the westbound inside lane, ultimately colliding with Guerrero’s car.

Guerrero was pronounced dead at the scene.

Thoughts on Fatal Truck Crashes

This is a devastating crash that appears to have been, based on the information available, entirely preventable. The parties responsible need to answer for the harm they have caused to the surviving family.

Was the trucker distracted, fatigued, or under the influence? Most crashes caused by driver error stem back to one of these fundamental safety rules. When a driver, especially a driver of a commercial vehicle, chooses to ignore these rules, they should not be permitted to escape liability for their actions.

Likewise, the actions of the trucking company may have an important role here. Trucking companies must take steps to ensure their drivers are safe. Did this company hire safe drivers? Did the company train its drivers?

Answers to these questions will provide the family with the information they deserve and ensure those responsible for this crash are held responsible.
