truck accident lawyersAn F-350 collided with a semi-truck on FM 8 near Lingleville for unknown reasons on Friday, killing three people and injuring a fourth.

Police say that three men were traveling together in the white truck when it drifted into oncoming traffic and collided with an 18-wheeler transporting milk. Authorities believe a tire may have blown on the F-350 to cause the vehicles direction to change rapidly. After the truck struck the semi, investigators say it hit a truck hauling rock.

The victims of the tragic crash included 54-year-old Ramon Esquivel; 44-year-old Ruperto Villalpando; and 53-year-old Abelardo Salas, Sr. The men were believed to have been working together prior to the collision.

The driver of the semi, Barry Kennedy, 53, was injured and airlifted to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. Kennedy was said to have incapacitating injuries; the driver of the rock truck was not injured.
