A Kermit oilfield truck head-on collision killed the driver of a passenger car Wednesday evening, on Highway 302.
Police said the driver of the oil field truck was attempting to pass a vehicle in front, when he smashed into a vehicle traveling in the opposite lane of traffic.
The driver of the passenger vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene of the Texas truck accident.
The oil field truck’s driver was transported to Medical Center Hospital in Odessa via Carestar, officials said. Police said he sustained serious injuries as a result of the Texas truck crash.
Police reported that the driver of the oil field rig was at fault.
Investigations surrounding the truck crash are still ongoing and police have not yet identified the victims of the Kermit collision.
The boom of oilfield workers and the industry as a whole has sparked increased traffic in some areas across Texas, causing worrying among some regarding the risk of accidents involving the large equipment and big rigs associated.
Some of the types of trucks involved in oil field vehicle accidents include:
- Flatbed trailers
