Six Car Pileup Snarls Traffic for Hours
Six vehicles were involved in a major accident which blocked all inbound main lanes of Highway 288 at Bellfort for more than an hour Friday morning. According to officials at the scene of the crash, the accident happened at approximately 6 a.m. with at least three people having suffered from minor injuries. Several ambulances responded to the incident. Views from KHOU’s Air 11 showed traffic backed up for more than five miles to Pearland before dawn. While all of the main lanes had been reported as being open as of 7:15 AM, backup congestion lasted nearly the entire duration of the morning commute. For many people who live within our cities and suburbs, freeways, tollways, and Interstate highways provide a quick way to get through their daily commute. Most people who travel on Texas freeways and Interstates arrive at their destinations safely and without incident. Even in the best of circumstances, however, accidents can happen at any time. With so many vehicles driving on these types of roadways and usually at higher rates of speed, the unexpected can occur and an accident is bound to happen. It’s not a case of if. It is simply a matter of when. Because of these higher rates of speed and the sheer number of vehicles that can be found on a freeway at any given time, crashes and accidents can be very serious and involve multiple motorists. Figuring out the circumstances as to who is at fault can be both complex and time consuming. If you or a loved one have been involved in a freeway accident of any sort, having an attorney on your side is extremely important.
