Man Killed on I-35 in Temple Disabled Vehicle Accident

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 23-May-2013

A Temple auto accident on I-35 left one man dead on Thursday while he was working on his broken down SUV on the side of the road and was struck by an oncoming pickup truck, police said.

Authorities identified the man killed in the Temple accident on I-35 as William Craig Holland, 69, of Roanoke.

Officials said Holland had pulled to the side of the interstate in an attempt to change the tire on his sport utility vehicle. A pickup truck approached the scene where Holland was working on his vehicle and struck him. The pedestrian accident occurred around noon, police reported.

Authorities told KWTX News that another truck had stopped to help the man with his SUV before the second pickup struck them. The driver of the pickup truck that stopped to help was not injured in the Central Texas crash. The driver of the second pickup truck was not injured either.

Holland was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of the man killed in this tragic accident.

Texas Disabled Vehicle Accidents

With road debris, vehicle failures, defects and auto mechanical failures, pulling to the side may never appear to place drivers and their families in a dangerous situation. But despite the necessity of pulling to the side to repair a tire or wait for assistance, other drivers may not always do the responsible thing and pay close attention to hazards and emergencies occurring ahead of them.
