Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 26-Mar-2013

An Odessa oil field accident killed three people and sent four others to the hospital in West Texas on Tuesday morning, when a Sanjel Corp van collided with an Asbestos Removal Inc. vehicle on Loop 338 and Yukon Road, officials reported.

Two of the people killed in the Odessa collision were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which occurred at approximately 7:15 a.m.

The three men who were killed in the commercial vehicle accident in Odessa were all employees of Sanjel Corp. The three occupants in the Asbestos Removal vehicle survived the crash.

Truck accidents have climbed in the Odessa region as oilfield and industrial traffic and increased, provoking safety advocates to push for increased safety precautions. Lower speeds, increased signals and signs are just some of the precautions residents and businesses alike have been encouraging in an effort to decrease the serious injuries and wrongful deaths occurring in the area as a result of 18 wheeler and oilfield truck accidents occurring all too often.

When dealing with the stressful and overwhelming aftermath of a truck or commercial accident, it can be difficult for many victims and the loved ones dealing with the loss of a family member, to understand the diverse laws, industry standards and various entities and people involved in such a traumatic accident.
