UPDATE: Adam Alderman Killed in Tractor-Trailer Accident in Milam County, Texas

MILAM COUNTY, TX — One man was killed and a child was taken to the hospital after a crash that happened in Milam County, Texas on Monday, May 5th, 2014, according to a news report from KBTX.

Officials have said that they believe 33-year-old Adam Alderman was killed when a pickup truck and a tractor-trailer collided for reasons currently under investigation while driving on Highway 36 around 10:00 Monday evening.

Scene of the Accident

Officials from the Texas Department of Transportation are helping local police with the accident investigation.


The news article really doesn’t give us many details to work with, but it’s really not too hard to imagine that one of these vehicles crossed into the lanes of oncoming traffic. If the truck turns out to be the one that crossed over, finding out why may be easier than some people think. The technology in these trucks have grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. In one particular instance, a trucking company had mounted driver-facing cameras and they captured a driver looking at girls on his phone as he sailed into the back of a sedan, killing the driver. We would have never known had we not looked. Additionally, trucks are outfitted with GPS, and other black-box like devices that allow us to have a very clear picture of what may have been happening in the truck at the time of the accident.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
