A major traffic accident on Interstate 20 just off of Benbrook, Texas led to the deaths of two men on Friday and closed all lanes of the highway for several hours. Authorities say the accident, which happened at around 2:00 p.m., occurred when a tractor-trailer and pickup truck, both heading west, crashed into each other.

The fatal car collision instantly killed two of the victims, while a third person sustained non-life threatening injuries and was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital. Local police are still investigating the cause of the car accident. The chaos and pain of a car accident will naturally be traumatic for everyone involved.

For victims who were simply caught unaware by the negligence of another driver, the damage and financial strain caused by a car accident can feel unfair. Fortunately, the law entitles victims to seek compensation for damages and medical treatment. Talk to the legal team of Barrus Injury Lawyers to discuss your legal options.
