13-Vehicle Pileup in Dust Storm Kills 1 Motorist

A 13-vehicle pileup that happened in the middle of a dust storm caused the death of a motorist in the Texas Panhandle. Authorities report that the accident forced the closure of I-40 near Conway. Traffic was restored to normal a day after. State Troopers confirm that 6 heavy rigs, 6 cars, and 1 motorcycle were caught in the crash they believe was caused by zero visibility in the dust storm. The accident’s only fatality was identified as Tammy Page of Medina, New York. Other passengers and drivers also sustained injuries and were brought to nearby hospitals for treatment. Accidents like these where inclement weather plays a role can make it especially tricky to determine liability for damages and wrongful death. This is precisely why seeking the advice of a car accident lawyer is so important—they have the expertise and knowledge of the law to determine whether your case has a good chance of qualifying for compensation.
