18-Wheeler Causes Pile Up Near Waco
October 27. 2011 10:43 by
A truck driver’s attempt to reverse his
into oncoming traffic on Interstate 35 near the
Forrest St. exit in Waco, Texas
resulted in a ten car pileup. Two people were taken to the hospital to treat their injuries, but none of the injuries are believed to be serious. Investigating officers are reporting that the 18-wheeler was carrying an oversized load at the time, and the truck driver realized he would not fit under the overpass. The truck driver stopped the 18-wheeler in the middle of traffic and began to reverse, which caused multiple
behind him. It appears that the root of the problem is the trucking company’s failure to properly use TxDOT’s automated system known as TXPROS, which charts out the proper routes for commercial trucks based on the size, weight chart out the proper route for the truck. Some observers are concerned about the cause of the
because truck drivers now input the information into TXPROS rather than TxDOT employees, and they fear that more of these types of accidents are likely to happen more frequently without proper training.
Fortunately in this case, this truck driver’s errors did not result in the loss of life or permanent injuries. Many trucking accidents do have tragic consequences, however.
