Fracking Boom Increases ‘Triple Tragedies’ on Texas Highways

All across Texas, the drilling and fracking boom has boosted fatal accidents for oil and gas workers, and for those who share the urban and rural roads that serve as important oil patch connectors. Triple tragedies Рaccidents that killed three or more people Рhave become common. The death toll from those kind of catastrophic crashes increased statewide from 72 in 2010 to 101 in 2012 and 148 last year, crash data compiled by the Houston Chronicle shows. Eighty-one people had died in triple tragedies through mid-July of this year. Lise Olsen, Houston Chronicle 09/17/2014
