A two-vehicle collision in Lubbock, TX leaves one driver and a passenger injured. Authorities say it happened on January 30, 2023 at approximately 9:15 a.m. Texas Department of Public Safety reported that a box truck collided with a passenger vehicle in the intersection of East Highway 62/82 and FM 400. The driver of the car was seriously injured and transported along with a passenger to University Medical Center for injuries sustained in the crash. The box truck driver did not report any injuries at the time of the crash.
It can be difficult to assign fault in a collision that happens during poor weather conditions. Authorities have not told us what led up to this crash, but I suspect weather may have played a role. Anytime a commercial vehicle is involved, a thorough investigation is important upfront because evidence can disappear. The only way to gain full access to vehicle records, electronic control modules, and dash cameras is through civil litigation, and this involves an attorney. Before making any decisions about how to move forward with a claim when you are involved in a collision, it is always best to seek an assessment of your case from an experienced attorney.
