(December 31, 2020) – A massive motor vehicle accident in the Van Horn area resulted in severe delays in traffic on Wednesday evening. On December 30, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of a major motor vehicle accident on Interstate 10.
Reports provided by local authorities show that a total of two semi-trucks and five other vehicles, including a pickup truck towing a trailer and a small white sedan, collided along the interstate as a result of icy conditions.
The crash caused significant delays throughout the area as crews worked to remove all of the damaged vehicles from the interstate.
Medical personnel responded to the scene of the accident to treat victims who were injured. Several ambulances were called to the scene to transport injured victims to local hospitals for further medical attention.
At this time, the Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident.
Our thoughts are with the victims who were injured in this accident. We hope for their fast and full recovery.
Truck Accidents in Texas
Each year, motor vehicle accidents across the state of Texas send more than 17,500 people to area hospitals with injuries. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, spinal cord injuries, cuts, and bruises that are extremely painful. Depending on the severity of injuries, victims can expect to be rushed to local hospitals where they are forced to undergo testing and extensive medical treatment. When semi-trucks are involved in accidents, the chances of being severely injured are greatly increased. The size and weight of semi-trucks compared to most other compact vehicles increases the chances of victims being left with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and various other life-altering injuries that demand extensive medical treatment.
In some cases, victims who are injured in accidents as a result of another person’s actions may be entitled to compensation to help cover the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, and various other costs they face moving forward.
