GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas — Georges Desire Zeutsa was injured after a collision with a semi-truck on Interstate 30 near Loop 12.
According to reports, Zeutsa was traveling eastbound on I-30 in Toyota Sienna when a tractor-trailer failed to control its speed and lost control, causing Zeutsa to crash into the truck. The crash caused Zeutsa to suffer injuries. The driver of the truck was reportedly uninjured.
No further information is immediately available.
Further investigation needs to be conducted to ensure all wrongdoing is accounted for
I am thankful that this accident did not result in a fatality. Nevertheless, from the reported facts, a motorist was injured in an accident caused by a trucker that failed to drive safely, resulting in the truck losing control and creating a dangerous situation for fellow motorists.
In addition to rules of the road applicable to all motorists, commercial operators must abide by the federal regulations designed to protect innocent motorists from the extreme risk posed by semi-trucks. These rules, primarily found in the Code of Federal Regulation, require truckers to exercise extreme caution when operating a vehicle on slick or wet roads. While extreme caution depends on the situation, the fact that this truck lost control on a wet road indicates that extreme caution was not being exercised. Such actions cannot be tolerated, and the driver of the truck and the motor carrier responsible for the truck should be held responsible for the harm caused by this crash. Under Texas law, a motorist injured by another motorist’s negligent conduct is entitled to compensation for the injuries suffered as a result of such negligence.
A detailed investigation of the accident will need to be conducted by trained attorneys to ensure all parties responsible for this crash are held responsible and that the injured motorist is provided an opportunity to recover under the law.
