An accident occurred at the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 6 and Country Road 99 in Texas on the morning of Thursday, January 23 between two trucks, one of which had a tractor-trailer.
A Nissan truck was heading south on CR 99, when its driver, identified as James Berendt, drove into traffic before the light turned green, causing a westbound truck on SH/FM 6, driven by Mario Gonzales, to crash into the Nissan. According to Corporal James Wright of the Department of Public Safety, Gonzales tried to swerve to avoid the other vehicle.
Berendt was then rushed to the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center for treatment of his critical wounds. Gonzalez, on the other hand, did not suffer from any injuries due to the accident.

Two people, including a firefighter who worked for 13 years in Tennessee’s Cosby Volunteer Fire Department, perished in an early morning truck crash on Tuesday, September 17 at around 6:45 a.m. on Interstate 40 in Cocke County.
A tractor trailer truck operated by 31-year-old Hartford resident Roger Hawk was sitting on the side of the interstate at milemarker 442 westbound near Newport, Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers said. Hawk and his passenger, the 33-year-old firefighter Elmer Ball, were standing near their vehicle when another big rig veered off from the interstate highway and crashed into it, instantly killing Ball and the driver of the second truck, 50-year-old Shelby, North Carolina resident Ricky Lee McCurry.
Police investigators are still trying to piece together details of the accident to find out what could have caused McCurry’s vehicle to run off the roadway and slam into the parked truck.
