The Texas Department of Public Safety is conducting an investigation over a fatal crash involving a dump truck owned by the Texas Department of Transportation. At exactly 7:30 in the morning of August 8, Monday, Texas DPS troopers arrived at the scene of a commercial truck accident along Farm-to-Market Road 1. The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating a single-vehicle, fatal crash involving a Texas Department of Transportation dump truck, just 2 miles north of Bronson.

Initial crash investigations show that the Texas DOT dump truck was heading northbound when it suddenly swerved into the opposite late, crashing into a ditch. The impact of the crush killed the driver. Police are still investigating exactly what happened. Fortunately, no one else was hurt.

Although it may seem that accidents like these were caused by human error, there have been instances when the accident was caused by poor vehicle maintenance and problematic road conditions. When this happens, the family of the victim killed in the accident can claim wrongful death.
