18-Wheeler Crashes into Bridge, Splits in Half on 1-45

(HOUSTON, November 2019) – An eighteen-wheeler truck struck a bridge and split in half on the North Freeway, causing both the northbound and southbound lanes to be shut down as cleanup crews worked to clear the scene. The accident occurred at the Shepherd Hill overpass, where the truck struck and cracked a beam. The driver of the vehicle says that a truck malfunction caused the crash. He believes that the dump bed was not working properly and engaged suddenly while he was driving, raising the bed and striking the bridge.

The Houston 18-wheeler accident attorneys of Mokaram Law Firm will update this story if more details emerge. Accidents involving 18-wheelers can be particularly dangerous due to the sheer size and weight of these vehicles, so it is crucial for truck drivers to exercise caution whenever driving. If the vehicle manufacturer or third party maintenance company was responsible for the lift-bed malfunction and someone had been hurt or killed, that entity could have been held liable for the crash. Fortunately, in this case, no one was injured, according to reports at this time.
