Oklahoma Semi-Truck Accident Kills Arlington Man

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 19-Dec-2011

An accident in Oklahoma claimed the life of an Arlington man after the driver lost control of the semi-truck, causing it to leave the roadway and land in a nearby embankment on Sunday, Oklahoma officials said.

Arlington, Texas resident, 45-year-old Fredrick Q. Smith was the passenger in the vehicle that crashed near Hollis, Oklahoma. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the semi-truck, Dallas resident, Quentin Trunnell, was transported via helicopter to a hospital in Texas with serious head injuries and internal injuries caused by the impact of the crash.

Officials say inattention by Trunnel may have caused the 18 wheeler truck while other reports note he may have fallen asleep, sparking the fatal truck accident.

Although authorities were unsure if Smith was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, Trunnel was, in fact wearing his seatbelt when the truck crashed.
