18-Wheeler Fatality in the Oil Field
Summary: Two oil field 18-wheeler drivers collided on a county road just outside of Cotulla, Texas and our client did not survive. The other 18-wheeler driver said our client crossed the yellow line, and DPS wrote it up that way. Liability was strongly disputed, however, we were able to prove from the lug nut marks, evidence recovered at the scene, and through cross examination of witnesses that the other 18-wheeler driver was extremely fatigued, had no driver training, was overworked, and was in fact the one that crossed the center yellow line. The case has been resolved.
