No One Seriously Injured in Grapevine Truck Accident
As reported by WFAA News, a fuel tanker has overturned in Grapevine, TX – spilling gasoline across Ira E. Woods Avenue.
The truck accident occurred just after 1 am; the cause of the tanker’s crash into a nearby ditch is still under investigation.
If you’re driving late at night, the Texas truck accident attorneys at Rasansky Law Firm remind you to follow the following safety tips:
- Check your speed. Darkness can affect your perception of the distance between objects. Driving more slowly can help you stop more quickly should you discover an object is closer than you thought.
- Keep it clean. Dirt and other smudges can cause light to diffuse across the windshield (instead of passing through it). This, in effect, can be a barrier to seeing the road ahead. Keep your windshield, mirrors, and headlights clean.
- Watch for wildlife. This is especially true if you’re driving in rural (or bordering on rural areas) where coyotes and other creatures are prone to wander onto the road.
Drive safely, Dallas!
