Commercial trucks pose a serious threat to those who are driving typical passenger vehicles. Despite efforts by the federal government to create better safety regulations for those who drive commercial vehicles, the number of serious accidents involving commercial vehicles, such as semitrucks, has increased in recent years. More people are being hurt in accidents with larger vehicles.
If you are one of the millions of parents who send their children to school each day on a school bus, then the fatal school bus accident in Houston last month probably has you concerned.
On the morning of Feb. 25, two vehicles were involved in a head-on collision that claimed the life of one driver. The other driver was left uninjured. The accident occurred when a semi-truck heading west struck an eastbound car on Highway 11, approximately seven miles east of Winnsboro. The Department of Public Safety reported that crash happened as the semi-truck rounded a curve on the highway and crossed over into the eastbound lane.
