In Comal, the loss of a loved one in an accident is one of the worst experiences imaginable. These accidents can happen for a multitude of reasons while working, driving or simply running an errand. A frequent cause of wrongful death is a motor vehicle crash. With the vast number of trucks on the road and their massive size, these crashes often end in a fatal truck accident.
A recent accident between a passenger car and an 18-wheeler in Lufkin, Texas led to the death of an 18-year-old female driver of the car. She was driving through an intersection when the 18-wheeler crashed into her car. She was thrown from the vehicle and died as the car was trapped underneath the truck. The truck was driving through the intersection legally, however, a road sign that was supposed to be at the intersection warning drivers coming from the direction of the car had been knocked down. The driver had recently graduated from high school and was preparing for her freshman year in college.
