Details About the Reeves County Truck Accident:

According to authorities, the incident took place north of the Wells Road intersection. A 58-year-old man was operating a northbound Mack 18-wheeler with a trailer, attempting to make a left turn onto a private road.

Simultaneously, a Kenworth 18-wheeler, with a trailer also in tow, allegedly failed to control its speed behind the turning Mack. Allegedly, the Kenworth driver aggressively applied brakes and veered left, crossing the centerline into the southbound lane of U.S. 285. Despite attempts to avoid collision with the rear-end of another vehicle, the Kenworth collided with the Mack mid-turn. Both trucks exited the roadway before coming to a halt.

The driver of the Mack sustained severe injuries and was transported by EMS to a local medical facility for treatment. No other information is currently available and an investigation is ongoing.
