At Least One Person Dead After Two Semi-trucks Crash Near Henderson, Rusk County, Texas

Rusk County, Texas —  A fatal two-vehicle wreck involving 18-wheelers has resulted in the closure of Highway 64 near Henderson.

According to officials from the Rusk County Office of Emergency Management, the crash occurred just west of the loop in Henderson, prompting the shutdown of Highway 64 from Loop 571 to County Road 424. The collision, which involved two semi-trucks in a head-on crash, took place around 9:30 a.m.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) transported one person to the hospital.

No further details have been provided.

Thoughts on semi-truck collisions

What happened here? Did one of the commercial trucks’ brakes fail? Did it suffer another type of mechanical issue? Was one of the truckers distracted, fatigued, or speeding? Trucks don’t collide unless someone or something fails to keep safety standards.

An investigation needs to take place to determine what went wrong here. Truckers spend a significant portion of their time on the road and deserve to be safe. Trucking companies must have safety procedures in place that can help keep truckers protected, such as safe drivers and well-maintained vehicles that undergo regular inspections and maintenance. When companies fail to do this, they should be held accountable.

If any wrongdoing took place in the form of negligence, may it come to light so the ones affected can receive justice.
