Car cuts off semi, sending load of pipes through second truck


Texas authorities say that they may issue citations after a two semi truck crash that was caused by a car driver’s careless maneuver.

The crash occurred around 12:40 p.m. on Wednesday, January 2, near Perry, Texas, according to a report from KBTX.

Authorities say that two semi trucks were traveling northbound on Highway 6 when a passenger vehicle cut off one of the trucks, causing the truck driver to change lanes to avoid a collision.

The two trucks collided, sending a load of pipes from one truck crashing through the cab of the other truck. The second truck was reportedly dragged by the first truck as a result of the crash.
