Two people ended up in the hospital due to the apparently reckless actions of another driver. The two people, and two children, were towing a truck down highway 82 in Grayson County. While they were towing the vehicle, another vehicle attempted to pass them on the right. The driver in the vehicle being towed had to hit the brakes to avoid being struck, according to a report in KXII and, because he was being towed, the braking action caused the towing vehicle to roll over.
There are some very basic driving skills that most of us are taught in school but that seem to be forgotten by a lot of drivers out there. One of them has to do with passing on the right. If you’re not on a four-lane highway, it’s a bad thing to do. The convention—and the law—requires that people pass on the left on highways. Using the shoulder as a passing lane is not permissible or safe.
Fortunately, the children in the truck that was towing the other vehicle were not harmed in the accident. This accident, however, is likely to cause the owners of both of the flipped vehicles a lot of money in repairs and medical bills. The accident also closed down one lane of the highway for over an hour, according to reports.
These types of accidents oftentimes occur because someone is negligent; quite frequently in a way that is beyond the pale. If you’re in one of these situations, you can pursue the option of filing a lawsuit against the driver that caused the accident so that, in addition to having to have gone through the trauma of the accident, you’re not shouldered with the responsibilities of cleaning up the financial mess that’s oftentimes left behind in the event of a crash.
