Truck accidents are some of the most dangerous types of accidents on the road. They often result in serious injuries or even death. A motorcyclist was killed on I-10 in Houston yesterday when an 18-wheeler turned in front of him. The truck driver fled the scene and police are still searching for him.
The crash occurred around 10:30 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-10 near Taylor Street.
According to HPD, it appears that an 18-wheeler hit the motorcyclist from the side and knocked the motorcycle over.
Truck accidents are so dangerous because of the size and weight of the vehicles. An 18-wheeler can easily crush smaller cars and motorcycles. The 18-wheeler that hit the motorcyclist yesterday was probably going much faster than the motorcycle, which made the impact even more deadly.
