4 Injured After 18-Wheeler Jackknifes on Highway 6 In College Station, Texas


Four people were injured yesterday morning, after an 18-wheeler jackknifed and struck multiple vehicles along State Highway 6 in College Station, Texas.

18-Wheeler Unable to Slow Down for Congestion

The September 26th crash occurred in the 2500 block of the highway, just south of the Southwest Parkway Overpass, shortly before 9:00 a.m.

Traffic in the northbound lanes was slowing as a result of an earlier, unrelated accident.

According to the College Station Police, an 18-wheeler heading north on Highway 6 was unable to slow down as it approached the congestion.

Four Hospitalized, Including Person With “Incapacitating Injuries”

The rig jackknifed and struck 3 other vehicles.

Four people were transferred to an area hospital, including 1 person who suffered “incapacitating injuries.”

A section of Highway 6 was closed for several hours, while crews from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) worked to clear a resulting oil spill.

Highway 6 Improvements Planned to Ease Congestion

Highway 6 in College Station handles some 92,874 vehicles per day, according to TXDOT.

The Department is considering steps to ease congestion on that stretch of road, including possibly implementing “intelligent transportation improvements” that would alert officials to accidents and stalled vehicles sooner.

The first phase of a project to widen that section of Highway 6 is expected to begin in 2021.
