Semi-Truck Accident on I-35 Injures Several PeoplePosted on Dec 31, 2011
18 Wheeler Causes Major Accident
According to police reports, the driver of an 18 wheeler, 39-year-old Adbirahman Abdullah-Moalim, was traveling along I-35 when he struck the back end of a Kia sedan. Local law enforcement officers say that after the commercial truck hit the car the trucker overcorrected, yanking the wheel to one side and striking the left side of a large bus.
The "Americanos" bus, driven by Jose Zuniga Tomaya, a 56-year-old trucker from Laredo, was damaged and several of the passengers were taken to area hospitals. A total of seven people were taken to the hospital. At the time of this report there was no information available as to their conditions.
In this case, police have stated that fault lies with the driver of the 18-wheeler and that contributing factors to the accident include failing to control the speed of his vehicle and driver inattentiveness, also known as driver distraction.
The Dallas semi-truck accident lawyers at the Hart Law Firm hope that all of the accident victims are well on their way to recovering fully from their injuries.
