Tragedy in Texas when a gas truck goes up in flames

The central Texas skies lit up in the early morning hours on an otherwise ordinary Friday this August when an SUV and a tanker truck collided in the parking lot of a gas station in Killeen. What resulted was a massive fire that consumed both trucks and even damaged other vehicles in the parking lot and destroyed a fire truck that responded to the emergency.

The cost of hardship and tragedy

No one said life was going to be fair. You are more than familiar with that promise. The most beautiful and healthy people are taken down by cancer, their bodies ravaged by disease before they pass. It never stops being unsettling to see a child fighting the disease. But, what of the cancer on the roadways? The senseless killer that is preventable and would not have happened without human recklessness, negligence or error. Sure, accidents usually involve some unfortunate circumstance outside of human control but in the case of many truck accidents, the accident would not have been so extreme had other dangerous factors not been present.

Senseless tragedies happen everyday. Accidents happen too, and they are qualified as an accident because they were unintentional. However, some accidents are different than others. Some accidents are preventable and avoidable. In those situations, someone's negligence or recklessness is often the cause of the accident and that person or company can and should be held accountable.

No signals contributed to train wreck

A Texas man in New Mexico was on his way back to his home near San Antonio when his trip came to a sudden halt, leaving his truck in utter disrepair and turned onto its side near the freight train it collided with. The man admitted that he was aware of the train and saw it from quite some distance but never saw any signals indicating he should stop.

MAP-21 in place for safety progress

The government and crash investigators, as well as much of the general public, have long since recognized a need for greater safety procedures and progress measures to become standardized within the trucking and commercial transportation industry. As the industry continues to be directly intertwined with personal vehicle travel, dangers remain constant. However, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, in an effort to satisfy statutes set about in the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, has completed nearly 3/4ths of the sections in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act.

Commercial vehicle accident leaves one dead

What do a trash truck, a tractor-trailer truck and a dump truck have in common? Aside from being commercial vehicles typically operated by hired drivers and owned by separate companies, they are also immense and powerful vehicles with a propensity for malfunction if not maintained. And, in the case of a tragic accident in Arlington, Texas recently, all three happened to be traveling through the same intersection within moments of each other and a domino effect of collision resulted, beginning with the trash truck and ending with the dump truck.

Authorities report the trash truck driver navigated a right turn at a high rate of speed. Whether or not the speed was because he was trying to make the turn before an oncoming tractor-trailer isn't stated but he did allegedly clip the side of an oncoming tractor-trailer, which threw the trash truck onto its side, just in time for an oncoming dump truck to slam into it.

Texas truck driver will stand trial

Depending upon the job that you do, you may nod your head that some of the routine and daily duties become so mundane and mind-numbing you are now able to do them while multitasking or almost without realizing you have done them at all. Moreover, most of us have had bad days at work; off days where something else was on our mind or even simply days where we went through the motions without ever being very cognizant of where we were.

That may be true for the majority of us. But what about those people who were given great responsibility at their jobs? What happens when they have an off day? Go through the motions? Multitask?
