Injured in an 18 Wheeler Accident?

Cesar Ornelas Can Help.

Cameron, TX

Early on the morning of February 23rd, 2021 in a town north of Austin, a train transporting oil tankers was involved in a large explosion. Although the official cause of the collision is still under investigation, an 18 wheeler truck seems to have swerved to avoid a car waiting at the railroad crossing and collided with the train. On impact, the oil tanker exploded causing a fire.

Though all drivers were uninjured from the explosion, a nearby house was burned down due to the fire. People living in the surrounding area were evacuated as a precaution to the fire as well as one of the train cars that was carrying sulfuric acid. Luckily, this train car was unaffected by the fire and was able to safely contain the hazardous material.
