Rockport Artist Killed in Texas 18 Wheeler Accident

Rockport, Tx resident Jesus Moroles was killed Monday night in a trucking accident when his van rear-ended and crashed into an 18 wheeler on Interstate 35 approximately thirty miles north of Austin, Texas.  Moroles died at the scene of the crash; however, the driver of the big rig tractor trailer was not injured.

Mr. Moroles was 64 years old at the time of his death and was a highly respected artist who lived in Rockport, Texas.  In 2008, Moroles was awarded the National Medal of Arts from President George W Bush and was well known for his granite sculptures.

Regardless of who is at fault for causing a trucking accident involving an eighteen wheeler or semi tractor trailer, such crashes often result in serious personal injury or death due to the huge size disparity and weight of these trucks.

Trucking Accidents Continue to Cause Serious Injuries and Wrongful Death

In 2010, over 500,000 large Semi Trucks, Tractor Trailers, Eighteen Wheelers and Commercial Vehicles were involved in accidents in the US; over 100,000 people sustained serious injuries in these accidents, and over 5000 people died in these crashes, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Due to their enormous sizes, large trucks such as semi trucks, eighteen wheelers, big rigs, and large commercial vehicles can cause serious damage, injury and death if involved in highway accidents.  It is estimated that the average large commercial truck weighs approximately 80,000 pounds and if traveling at 60 m.p.h., it takes the length of a football field for such a truck to come to a stop.

Various U.S. agencies, including the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), have compiled the following statistics regarding large trucking accidents:

  • Out of 15.5 million trucks in the U.S., nearly 13 percent are semi trucks, eighteen wheelers, tractor trailers and big rigs
  • About 98 percent of all semi accidents result in at least one fatality
  • Fatal tractor trailer accidents cost Americans more than $20 billion each year
  • Nearly 90 percent of commercial truck accidents are caused or worsened by human error
  • Driver fatigue is responsible for approximately 30 percent of all commercial truck accidents
  • About 130,000 people are injured each year in trucking accidents

If you have suffered serious personal injuries or lost a loved one due to wrongful death as a result of a trucking accident involving a semi truck, tractor trailer, eighteen wheeler, big rig, or large commerical vehicle, you should hire a Board Certified Personal Injury Lawyer for immediate representation.  Call Sheadyn R.
