Commentary on the 18-wheel rollover accident on the I-30 and CR-4115 in Hunt County
The news almost always overlooks rollover accidents like this because they think there is nothing to discuss. Everyone injured was in the truck, so what more can we say? Well it depends on a lot. One thing to keep in mind is how the law treats passengers injured in an accident. Except in an extreme example like someone pulling on a steering wheel, pedestrians cannot really bear the blame for an accident.
As such, if the passenger is not a colleague covered by the workers’ commission, accidents like this can get to the courts just as they can when an 18-wheeler crashes into a car. . If the police reports are correct, a truck driver made a mistake and someone was injured. This usually means the trucking company is on the hook. It can be a complex situation depending on who the passenger is and what they were doing at the time, so even a seemingly simple accident like this should be handled by experienced professionals.[jump]
