Monday morning a deadly trucking accident persuaded police to close multiple lanes on Hwy FM 2243 near Toll 183 in Leander due to a fatal accident involving a semi-truck and a car. At around 12:15 pm police report that an 18-wheeler truck was driving eastbound when it collided with a car that was heading north. Both the passenger and driver of the car were killed, and a third as taken to St. David’s hospital in Round Rock in serious condition.

Like most trucking accidents, the truck driver himself was not injured, but the passengers in the small Porsche were killed or seriously injured. With the Texas energy boom in places such as Eagle Ford Shale, there has been an explosion of semi-trucks on Texas Highways, which has lead to an increase in deadly trucking accidents.
