Texas garbage truck involved in fatal accident

Regardless of intention or negligence, there will always be times when accidents occur on the road. In a recent Texas incident, a woman riding a bicycle was hit by a garbage truck. The fatal accident is still under active investigation. 

According to investigators, a 21-year-old Texas A&M student was riding her bike along a local College Station road on Thursday, September 8. At approximately 11 a.m., the bicyclist was hit by a garbage truck. The bicyclist was tragically pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Details of this event are still undetermined and being probed by the police. Onlookers reported that some of the tires from the garbage truck had been removed during the investigation. According to the article, this was done in order for investigators to look more closely at the vehicle to determine the cause of the accident.

The driver of the sanitation vehicle reportedly cooperated with police after the collision. Bystanders report that he seemed very shaken from the event. According to city officials, the driver was very experienced and had undergone extensive on-the-job training prior to the accident. Additionally, the company requires its drivers to maintain a commercial driver's license.

Additional details about the accident will likely be forthcoming. Those in Texas who have faced the tragic loss of a loved one after a fatal accident may benefit from contacting a personal injury attorney. Attorneys who are experienced in this area of law will be in the best position to discuss the various legal options available to surviving family members.
