Dear Lord, please watch over those that were injured in this accident and place your healing hands upon their bodies and spirits lord. We ask this in your name with the glory and honor to you. Amen.
While the Wills Point PD continues their investigation into the crash more information will become available in the future. At the moment it is unknown whether the driver of the 18-wheeler was unable to stop or the driver of the car misjudged the distance between the two. The time at which the accident occurred means that it would still be light outside. This would mean that overall visibility would not have been a factor in the accident taking place. The normal causes of accidents according to the Texas Department of Public Safety are due to inhibitory substances, visibility issues due to inclement weather, or bad night vision. Distracted driving through phone calls and messages along with eating while driving or passengers in the car are also common reasons. Any one of these could have affected either of the two vehicles' drivers.
