Eagle Ford Shale Truck Accidents
An Eagle Ford Shale deposit stretches across South Central Texas. Many believe that this deposit is one of the largest untapped natural gas and oil sites in the United States. Oil companies are cashing in, bringing an influx of activity to the area.
Along with opportunity comes the potential for danger to workers in this area. Because many trucking jobs have become available and for other reasons, there has a been a huge increase in traffic in parts of South Central Texas. Many of these roads were never intended to carry a large volume of traffic. Some roads are crumbling due to the weight of semi trucks and other vehicles. The result? An increased number of 18-wheeler accidents.
Some of the most common causes of car and commercial trucking accidents include:
- Dangerous roadways, which were not created to accommodate such large volume of traffic
- Inexperienced drivers who have been recently hired by oil and gas companies
