1 is killed, 4 are injured in a Nov. 19 T-Bone crash in Waco

On Nov. 19, officers with the Waco Police Department were dispatched to the intersection of South Third Street at South University Parks Drive just after 1:45 p.m. When they arrived on the scene, they found that a 22-year-old Texas State Technical College student who had been riding in one of the vehicles involved in the crash had been killed.

In speaking with witnesses, the investigators determined that the driver of a Ford F-150 pickup truck had been driving northbound along University Parks Drive shortly before the crash occurred. It was as he attempted to make a left to head west along South Third Street that a gravel truck apparently came through the intersection and collided into the passenger side of his truck.

The impact of the crash caused the front-seat passenger of the Ford to die in an instant. The other three occupants of the pickup and the gravel truck's driver all suffered serious injuries in the crash. They were all transported to area hospitals and are expected to survive.

Police have yet to determine whether the gravel truck's operator will be charged with any crime for his alleged role in causing the crash.

T-bone types of accidents and other others that occur at intersections are particularly dangerous. While side airbags have helped to curb the severity of injuries and death rates of victims involved in these, not everyone's vehicle is equipped with them. Even when they are, they don't always work as they should. A Waco truck accidents attorney can advise you of your right to sue the liable party and your car's manufacturer when crashes like this occur.
