“FARMERSVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – Three people were hurt Wednesday when a fire truck crashed into the side of a Dairy Queen restaurant in Farmersville, located east of McKinney. The incident took place at around noon along East Audie Murphy Parkway…the person driving the fire truck, the customer inside of the damaged vehicle in the parking lot, and one Dairy Queen employee. Their exact injuries are not known, but all of the victims are expected to be okay.”
When Truck Crashes Cause Major Property Damage
In addition to the injuries suffered by victims, a number of serious truck crashes in Texas cause extensive property damage. Says Texas truck crash lawyer Amy Witherite of Eberstein Witherite LLP, “reports show that in this case, the restaurant was badly damaged and so was a vehicle that was in the parking lot. Our firm has worked with numerous cases like these where victims were not only those who sustained physical injuries, but also those who lost their livelihood due to the actions of truck drivers whose vehicles without warning left the road and ended up crashing into a building.”
The owner of the restaurant, Joe McKee, told news sources that the property destruction from the accident is a devastating loss stating, “I’ve been doing this for 30 years… This is my life seven days a week, so I’m pretty devastated right now.”
McKee further said of the fate of his employees “I have 32 people that probably just lost their jobs or I don’t know… I just don’t know about any of that.”
The Texas truck wreck lawyer states, “many people are not aware that the law allows them to pursue property damage claims against those responsible when a vehicle has damaged their building, and just try to cover the costs of any resulting damage on their own.” Witherite says that anyone who has sustained damages or injuries in a serious truck crash can pursue claims for damages from truck drivers or trucking companies responsible.
The cause of the crash was still under investigation at the time of the report.
