Flipped Semi-Truck Causes Accident on I-30 in Mesquite, Texas: Several Serious Injuries Reported

Mesquite, Texas —  An 18-wheeler on Interstate 30 struck a center barrier, causing a collision between several vehicles.

According to reports, the semi-truck struck a center barrier and flipped on its side. A witness involved in the accident claims the large truck was hauling a steel container that flipped over, and several vehicles plowed into it.

Serious injuries have been reported, with two individuals listed in critical condition.

Thoughts on semi-trucks with unsecured containers

When roadway accidents like this one cause motorists severe harm, it is crucial for a thorough investigation by trained professionals to take place. Examining all the events that led to the accident will help hold all wrongdoers whose actions caused serious injuries responsible.

Here, we need to determine what caused the semi-truck to slam into the barrier and its steel container to flip over. Did the truck driver hit the barrier because they were speeding, distracted, or impaired? Or did the unsecured cargo cause the driver to lose control? Answers to these questions are more important than some people think.

Truckers, trucking companies, and third-party loading and shipping companies are responsible for loading and securing loads safely and properly onto trucks. When they fail to do so, and an accident causes serious injuries or death, all three parties can be at fault for negligence.

May all the facts come out so any and all wrongdoers can be held accountable.
