This is another glaring example of how many incompetent tractor-trailer drivers are allowed to drive on the highways of Texas.
Remember that a family of three from Frisco and a relative were among 10 people fatally injured June 26 in a pileup on Interstate 44 near Miami in far northeast Oklahoma. Killed were Randall Hayes, 38, and his 7-year-old son, Ethan. Hayes’ wife, Shelby Hayes, 35, died two days later at a hospital in Missouri. Her mother, Cynthia Olson, 55, of Crossroads in Denton County also died in the crash. A tractor-trailer slammed into cars that had stopped on the highway.
The latest statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that large trucks were involved in a staggering 4,808 fatal wrecks in 2007, with 405 of them in Texas.
