One person has been killed in a two-vehicle involving a cement truck in Anna on Tuesday afternoon.
According to Lonny Haschel, a spokesperson with the Department of Public Safety, the crash happened shortly before 1:30 p.m. on CR 210 in the eastbound lane when a cement truck went off the shoulder. The driver over-corrected and ended up back on the road. The truck crossed over the median and struck a car traveling westbound.
When the cement mixer struck the car, it became pinned between a tree and the cement truck.
The driver of the car died at the scene of the crash as the result of injuries sustained in the crash. The name of the victim has not been released by authorities.
The driver of the cement truck was uninjured.
Accidents involving large trucks can be devastating or even deadly. Every year thousands of motorists are either critically injured or killed in accidents involving trucks and smaller passenger vehicles. Sometimes such accidents are due to the negligent operation of drivers. Motorists who drive passenger vehicles such as cars or pickup trucks simply do not have the size advantage that many construction, work or even semi-trucks have while traveling on streets, highways and other roadways.
