Justin McMinn on Delaney Nelson case

Gravel Truck Crash Victim Retains McMinn Law Firm

Austin Gravel Truck Wreck Victim Retains McMinn Law Firm

Representing a driver hurt in last week’s heavily publicized gravel truck crash in Austin, personal injury lawyer Justin McMinn filed a lawsuit against Marcos Trucking Corp.

Delaney Nelson, a student at Concordia University, was driving to class last week when the commercial dump truck hauling gravel careened out of control across all lanes of 2222, smashing Delaney’s car and causing her serious injuries.

“Glass was embedded in her face and ears and she has also had significant spinal issues,” said the victim’s attorney Justin McMinn.

A dash cam in a vehicle witnessing the accident recorded the brutal collision. The witness shared the truck crash video which quickly was picked up by more than 60 online outlets, publicizing the crash and documenting important evidence.

“Anybody that watches that video, their first reaction is oh my gosh, how many people died in the accident? Fortunately here nobody did die,” said Justin McMinn.
