Another Midland 18-Wheeler Crash Leaves 1 Dead, 4 Injured


A violent crash involving an 18-wheeler and a pickup truck left one person dead in Midland County last Thursday and seriously injured four others.

18-Wheeler Driver Ran Stop Sign East of Midland

The Texas Department of Public Safety received reports of a “major accident” east of Midland around 4:30 p.m. on January 16th.

According to the Department’s report, the 18-wheeler had been heading west on County Road 160. The truck driver apparently disregarded a stop sign and collided with a Dodge Ram pickup that had been towing a trailer south on Farm-to-Market Road 1379.

Trucker Died at Scene, Injured Taken to Midland, Lubbock Hospitals

The 18-wheeler driver, a 47-year-old man from Cutler Bay, Florida, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Paramedics rushed the driver of the pickup and his three passengers to Midland Memorial Hospital. Two of the passengers were subsequently airlifted to Lubbock.

The injured have been identified as a 47-year-old Odessa man; two men from San Angelo, Texas, both 28; and a 34-year-old man from Christoval, Texas. So far, authorities have not commented on their condition or disclosed the nature of their injuries.

Crash was 3rd Fatal Midland Truck Accident in Recent Weeks

Last Thursday’s crash was at least the third fatal truck accident to occur in Midland County in less than a month.

On December 19th, a 26-year old woman and mother of two from Granbury, Texas died tragically when a Dodge pickup in which she was travelling collided with a semi-truck at the intersection of State Highway 137 south and Farm-to-Market Road 307.

The driver of the pickup, a 30-year-old man from Granbury, suffered critical injuries, while the semi-truck driver escaped the crash unharmed.

Two people were killed on January 10th when a Ford F-150 pickup truck collided head-on with an oilfield tanker along Farm-to-Market Road 1208 just east of Midland. The vehicles were quickly engulfed in flames and both drivers died at the scene.

The Texas DPS later identified the pickup truck driver as a 30-year-old Midland man, while the driver of the oilfield tanker was identified as a 44-year-old man from Miami, Florida.
