One Tow Truck driver killed, and Another Injured in an Accident with a FedEx Semi-truck on I-20 in Duncanville, Texas

Duncanville, Texas – A tow truck driver died, and a second wrecker sustained injuries in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 20 on Wednesday. The collision involved a FedEx truck, a flatbed trailer, and two smaller vehicles.

According to reports, the crash happened when two wreckers were on the right shoulder of the highway, preparing to tow a car when a FedEx truck tried to pass a vehicle in the right lane, colliding with the wreckers and the car and trapping the tow truck drivers beneath the wreckage.

One tow truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene, while emergency responders airlifted the other truck operator to a nearby hospital.

Thoughts on accidents with large corporate trucks

What a terrible accident — one person died, and another was seriously injured simply doing their job. Large commercial trucks cannot afford to pass vehicles on our roadways when deemed unsafe to do so. Breaking safety road rules can often result in devastating consequences, such as in this incident.

Whether the FedEx truck driver made an error in judgment and passed the car in front of them untimely needs to be determined. If trained professionals conclude that the trucker disregarded basic safety rules, the FedEx truck driver should have to answer to the surviving family and the injured and should be held accountable for the harm their negligent actions caused.

May the family of the deceased and the injured receive the answers and help they need to move their life forward.
