Fiery car crash shuts down Gulf Freeway this morning

The main lanes of the Gulf Freeway were shut down this morning during rush hour due to a vehicle crash and fire. Two vehicles wrecked on the inbound lanes of the Gulf Freeway at around 6:15am near Telephone Road. One of the vehicles, possibly a motorcycle, burst into flames. Injuries were reported, but specifically what isn’t known at this time. The scene was cleared within about an hour but traffic backed up for miles.

If you, a friend or a family member have been injured in a car accident, Smith & Hassler’s experienced personal injury attorneys are available to give you a free consultation either in-person or by phone.  Sometimes people injured in car accident wait before consulting an attorney. They have good intentions: not wanting to seem “sue happy,” waiting to see if their injuries will get better or because an insurance adjuster is discouraging them from seeking legal advice (that happens).  It is better to know your rights early in the process and have an experienced Houston personal injury attorney explain the steps involved in car accident injury claim and what you can do NOW to increase the chances of a good outcome.
