by | Sep 30, 2021 | Auto Accident, Personal Injury

There was an accident between an 18-wheeler and a motorcycle in Orange, Texas on September 28, 2021.  The crash occurred at mile marker 862 on Interstate 10 eastbound.  It is unclear at this time what occurred in the accident, but the driver of the motorcycle was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

There have been a number of recent trucking accidents in Texas and Louisiana, resulting in severe injuries and sometimes death.  There was a major fire involving an 18-wheeler in Kenner, Louisiana on September 20, 2021.  There was a deadly accident involving an 18-wheeler in Sealy, Texas on September 20, 2021.  There was a crash involving an 18-wheeler in Smith County, Texas on September 21, 2021.  There was a deadly accident between an 18-wheeler and a motorcycle in Vermilion Parish, Louisiana on September 21, 2021.  An 18-wheeler overturned in Houston, Texas on September 22, 2021.

Safe trucking companies must take adequate precautions to ensure that their drivers do not severely injure or kill members of the public in a trucking accident.  Industry standards require trucking companies to regularly inspect their equipment.  Safe companies must also supervise their driver to ensure that the company’s policies and procedures have been followed.  Drivers must yield to other traffic on the roadway.  This is not just common sense, but is actually the law.
