3 Injured After Speeding 18-Wheeler Caused 9-Vehicle Accident on I-10 Near El Paso, Texas


Three people were injured early Thursday morning, after an 18-wheeler failed to slow down, resulting in a nine-vehicle pile-up along I-10 East near El Paso, Texas.

The truck accident occurred shortly before 8:00 a.m. on November 8th, near Yarbrough and Lomaland drives, at Mile Post 30.

Chain Reaction Prompted by 2011 International Semi Truck Colliding with Toyota Rav 4

Traffic was backed up on I-1o when a 2011 International semi truck with a flatbed trailer in tow crashed into a 2015 Toyota Rav 4 driven by Rosa Luna of El Paso, Texas.

The force of the impact pushed Luna’s vehicle into a 1996 Chevrolet Astro, 2015 Dodge Charger, 2009 Nissan Sentra and 2006 Nissan Altima. All of the vehicles were stopped in the far-right eastbound lane due to traffic congestion.

Two of the vehicles involved in the initial collision struck a 2006 Western Star semi truck and a 2015 utility truck that had been heading east in an adjacent lane.

Three Motorists Transferred to El Paso Hospital – One with Serious Injuries

Luna sustained serious injuries and was taken to Del Sol Medical Center in El Paso for treatment.

The driver of the Chevrolet Astro, Jesus Sanchez, and the driver of the Dodge Charger, Yolanda Morgan, both from El Paso, were also injured and transferred to Del Sol Medical Center.

No other information on the victims’ condition has been released.

El Paso Police Say 18-Wheeler Driver Failed to Control Speed

Special Traffic Investigators shut down all lanes of I-10 for nearly three hours Thursday. The freeway was re-opened by 1:10 p.m.

While the investigation into the crash continues, El Paso police have said that the driver of the International semi, Gary McDaniel of Arlington, caused the accident by failing to control the speed of his 18-wheeler.
