Justin, Texas — There was a major accident between two 18-wheeler trucks out in rural Justin this past Monday that left the two truck drivers badly injured. Texas DPS troopers said that this happened along FM 407, near the intersection with Dove Hill.
Apparently, the driver of an 18-wheeler lost control along FM 407 and slid off the side of the road.
The driver over-corrected and swerved back across, going into the oncoming lanes of traffic. There, it collided head-on with a second 18-wheeler truck.
The accident resulted in one of the trucks staying on FM 407 and catching fire while the other truck drove off the road and hit a tree. Both drivers were taken via helicopter to hospitals in Denton and Fort Worth, where they were both said to be in serious condition.
The reason the first trucker lost control that day hasn’t been determined yet.
