Roberto Rubio Killed in an Accident with a Semi-truck that Failed to Stop on FM 829 in Martin County, Texas

Martin County, TX – A man died when a semi-truck and his pickup collided. The incident happened Monday morning on FM 829.

According to reports, Roberto Rubio was heading south on FM 829 in his pickup truck. As he passed the intersection, a semi-truck traveling east on CR 3400 and approaching FM 829 disregarded a stop sign and struck Rubio’s truck.

Rubio died from his injuries at the scene.

Thoughts on semi-trucks that disregard traffic signals

What is being done to bring justice to a wholly innocent man and his surviving family left to pick up the pieces? This crash is so senseless it raises questions as to what the driver was doing leading up to the collision. Was the driver drunk, using a cell phone, or too tired to operate the truck? Such actions must be investigated, and the driver must be held accountable for the life taken. The surviving family deserves answers, and they deserve justice. Their life has been forever changed.

May the family receive justice and compensation for the immeasurable grief and financial burden unfairly placed on them.
